EXPLORE OUR YOUTH PROGRAMS
When school is out for the summer, steamlabs offers weekly maker camps to engage kids and teens in a fun summer full of making! We have weeklong camps running every week in July and August for two whole months of fun at multiple Toronto locations.
All of our educators and mentors have completed steamlabs Maker Educator programs and are skilled in working with the latest technology and creating spaces for our participants to explore, learn and understand technology. By understanding technology, kids learn to understand our world and their power in it.
PLAY, DESIGN, MAKE & CELEBRATE!
steamlabs runs camps, after-school programs, weekend workshops and birthday parties that get kids using their hands to create something they are proud of. Children build confidence in the use of hand-tools and digital fabrication machines such as our laser-cutter or our bank of 3D printers. They learn to code using physical robotics, progressing quickly from MakeCode to industry-standard Python.

“We make things every day and get to take them home. You can make whatever you want. You can make something you love.”
Male, age 11
“You get to express yourself with what you make. The instructors are all really nice and are fun to work with. They let me explore my interests and together we came up with good ideas.”
Male, age 9
“I love building things and taking them apart. This is the first time I’ve seen tools like this. We use laser-cutters, 3D printers and hand tools to make the best stuff. I made a robot!”
Female, age 12
“Is there a gap between the age I can come to steamlabs as a student and when I can work here? Because I ALWAYS want to come here!”
