We are pleased to announce our Fall 2018 programs!
The Zen Maker Club is a popular after school program held at local schools in the Lower Mainland.
Currently we have Zen Maker Clubs in North Vancouver and West Vancouver. Please contact us if you are interested in starting a Zen Maker Club at your school in your neighborhood.
We have a high student to instructor ratio with at least one instructor for every twelve kids. We come to the schools with our Zen Maker Mobile and roll in some advanced maker technologies including 3D printers, 3D scanners, electronics and more! We focus on STEAM content (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Mathematics). Participants have fun while learning valuable skills including coding, electronics, 3D design and 3D printing, art, web development, entrepreneurship and more!
The Zen Maker Club After School Program is intended for elementary school kids from Grades 4 to 7 (some exceptions for grades 3 students). No previous experience required. For kids with previous maker tech experience or that have participated in our after school program, we will be sure to have material that is more challenging.
