Description

Zen Maker Club Electronics Program

In this 8-week after school program at Queen Mary Elementary we explore the "make" side of Design, Make and Play. It is intended for kids in Grades 4 to 7. No experience necessary.

This is our Electronics program where kids learn about electronics through experimenting with circuits and build a final project that incorporates everything they've learned. Kids will also have the opportunity to do 3D printing and modelling in this program.

For kids that have been enrolled in this program before, we have different levels. Your kids "Level up!" each time they complete the electronics program. For kids that have completed level one, they will get access to more advance components and circuits in level two and they will be building a level two project!

Registration includes all supply costs.

To provide a high instructor to student ratio and to provide a very engaging experience, we are limited to a maximum of 10 children in the Zen Maker Club per semester.

To model a real life industry context, our approach is cross disciplinary and how the design, technology and entrepreneurship components intersect is as important as going deep into one particular topic. Participants that continue on with the Zen Maker Club will get an opportunity to advance to more sophisticated and challenging levels of the topics and will discover which areas are of most interest to them. We will also briefly mention the kinds of careers the various topics can lead to.

We have different projects and curriculum based on the experience of the participants.


Note: We cover a lot of material in a short time and require participants to be respectful of their instructors as they would their daytime teachers and to not disrupt other participants through bad behavior . We reserve the right to exclude kids from our program that are disruptive that prevent the other participants from learning. In this case, a refund will be issued on a prorated basis. For any behavioural issues, we will first attempt to address with the participant and then with the parent if necessary. This is a rare occurance but where there are behavioral problems, in order for the experience to be enjoyable and educational for the other participants, we reserve the right to limit access to the Zen Maker Club.
