What do Steve Jobs, Elon Musk and Bill Gates have in common in their educational background?
No, they didn’t all go to Ivy League universities – but they all went to technology summer camps or after-school programs.
MakerKids runs summer camps, after-school programs and parties on Robotics, Coding and Minecraft. But what we’re really all about is helping kids develop the skills and confidence to become innovators, inventors, and entrepreneurs.
Graduates of our programs have started their own businesses, presented their projects on national TV, and been featured in magazines. What will your child create?
In our camps, your child will learn:
21st century skills
Kids have gone from having emotional or academic difficulties to leading clubs, improving their marks, and taking on more responsibility and ownership at home.
Your kids will learn from NASA-educated entrepreneurs, teachers and engineers. These professional skills will help them become leaders in their future careers.
Your kids will feel like they fit in with this community of like-minded peers and feel a sense of belonging. Kids make friends, learn conflict resolution skills, and collaborate to build amazing projects.
About ROBOTICS Camp
Design the world around you! In our Robotics camp, kids will design, plan, program, and build an electronic invention while using an Arduino and learning how to code. Kids will better understand how everyday objects around them work and will have the opportunity to bring their ideas to life. An Arduino is a microcontroller and is used by industry professionals. It was even used to prototype the Square Reader!
About CODING Camp
Our coding programs are interdisciplinary. Kids will learn everything they need to know to create their very own game: character development, storyboarding, animation, environment and level design, beta testing and, of course, coding. Programs also involve design, logic, math, computer skills, teamwork and creativity
About MINECRAFT Camp
By the end of our Minecraft camps, kids will have learned how to make Minecraft even more awesome, having learned how computers and servers work and about core computer programming concepts while collaborating with kids equally excited about Minecraft. They will learn technical and critical soft skills, like effective communication and conflict resolution.
About the SAMPLER Camp
If you’re looking for inspiring STEM education, this is the right place! In each camp, kids make something awesome, create their own projects and collaborate with others. Build leadership skills, meet other kids who are makers, make your own project, and more. In our Idea Incubator (Sampler) Camps, kids will dive into our three core STEM topics: Coding, Robotics and Minecraft.
Optional Before & After Care: 8:00-9:00am & 3:30-6:00pm
