Event Details

"MakerKids came on my radar after Googling the game Minecraft, a game that my kids are very passionate about. What a lucky find! Every Thursday now my twin 9 year old boys play their favourite game with other fans in a safe, fun and welcoming atmosphere. The mandate that we are all "makers" and that creativity is the beginning of any great idea is apparent in the relaxed accepting vibe of the space and  in the approach of the facilitators. Makers themselves, they seem to intuitively embrace and encourage what other classes and systems work so hard to repress. My boys flourish here and look forward to it every week. They show social skills improvement and more confidence since coming to MakerKids and finding their "tribe." Happy children make me a happy and grateful mom. Thanks MakerKids (especially Brent) for creating programs for my quirky, "outside the box thinking" boys." - Tammy Isbell

Do you love Minecraft? 

Come in and play and learn on our kid/teen-safe server with knowledgeable staff around to answer all your Minecraft questions!

At our Minecraft drop-in, kids and teens can play Minecraft under our supervision and explore digital creation. They learn how to create skins, install mods, learn about adventure maps, set up a server or connect to existing servers so they can play in multi-player mode with everyone there. Kids and teens can also learn how to convert Minecraft objects to 3D models, and then test out the 3D printer!

What kind of technology have kids experienced and used at our past Minecraft drop-ins? Printcraft, 3D printing, Oculus Rift, 3D Scanner, Contraption Maker, and more! (Oculus Rift and 3D Scanner were a special one-time only brought by TVO to our event) http://tvoparents.tvo.org/blog/tvoparents-blog/how-makerkids-developing-smart-kids-now

Please come with a Minecraft account login (paid version), and bring a computer if you can.

You must purchase a ticket in advance to attend Minecraft Thursdays.
