Event description

Description

Maker Kids is a family event at which adults and kids share learning experiences. A number of hands-on activities are available for kids: creating toys or instruments, designing bags, making electric circuits, building a solar oven and more.

Children are natural makers — give a kid a cardboard box, and she’ll transform it immediately into a spaceship, an oven, an elevator, or something else that I probably cannot imagine!

This maker space inspires curiosity, creativity, and confidence. It is in accordance with the natural inclination of kids to “learn by doing” and “learn through play.” Kids are engaged when they define, create, and complete projects based on their interests using real-world tools. Working towards a goal helps them to focus as they progress on a project.

Maker Kids promotes community and collaboration. Makers collaborate by sharing their projects and solutions. An environment in which ideas are shared is conducive to everyone’s growth. When kids teach other kids what they know, it increases their self-confidence.

We emphasize process over product. One of the biggest lessons that come from making is learning that it’s okay to fail. In places like TBB, failures are celebrated as opportunities to learn.

In this session, you can choose one of the projects available in our MAKER SPACE. Once you arrive you can check every area and decide which one you want to run.

Now for a limited period, you can get it for free in this open door session. Hurry! Limited tickets are available.
