We just announced our Fall 2018 program and registration is now available!

Zen Maker Lab is proud to offer an advanced academy program for kids 8-14 at our headquarters in beautiful North Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada. This is a great program for children and youth that want to build further on the skills learned from our Zen Maker Club, Spring and Summer camps and other programs or have a similar amount of experience or enthusiasm to learn. We find our program is equally of interest to both girls and boys and because we take a holistic approach (integrating science and engineering with art/design) we appeal to a broader group than the typical robotics or coding program demographic.

This program covers a variety of maker topics and students will enjoy real life access to highly specialized equipment and experienced industry instructors at our leading edge maker lab facility – aimed at stimulating tomorrow’s digital creators.

Participants will be working on a variety of activities throughout the fall. The main project will be building a remote control car from scratch using electronics, laser cut and 3D printed pieces.

Fridays – 12:30 pm to 2 pm – Home School Learner Program – Info and registration
