Kids After School Maker Club

Imagineering Club is a weekday after school program for kids who have lots of ideas and love to make things. At our maker space, Imagineers will learn new technologies and making skills to bring their ideas to life!

Kids After School Maker Club

Program Details

Similar to Imagineering, the After School Club introduces the fundamental skills of making and programming. Students will take part in a 3-week introductory course which introduces laser cutting and 3D Printing design techniques, wood shop tools and basic electronics. After the introductory lessons, students will spend 4 weeks working on personal projects along with the guidance of our maker educators and mentors. 

New skills are required in the 21st century – problem solving, creativity, and collaboration. We nurture our Imagineers to develop these skills as they are designing and building their projects. Imagineers are resourceful, capable, independent and creative.

The program includes both structured activities and unstructured independent tinkering time using hand tools, craft materials, electronics, online digital tools like scratch and minecraft, and digital fabrication tools (3D printers and the laser cutter).

What's included

Skills Learned

  • Use tools, craft materials, electronics, online digital tools (eg. minecraft, scratch, tinkerCAD etc), digital fabrication tools (3D printers and laser cutters) to work on projects
  • Have their own project book to plan, draw and document their ideas and projects
  • Learn how to generate ideas, make a plan and celebrate failures
