In our 5-week Maker Tech After School Program, students will build a Mirobot, a fun, drawing robot, and will learn coding as they control the robot.
Students will be provided with a Mirobot kit they can build and use in the program. The Mirobot can be optionally purchased for $75 if they would like to take home and keep (regular Mirobot price is between $100-$125).
Instructors will be: Matthew Ng Shun and Cyri Jones
Matthew graduated from BCIT's mechatronics program and has been our lead instructor at Zen Maker Lab for several years. Cyri teaches IT and entrepreneurship at Capilano University and BCIT and has a B.Sc. and a MBA.
The program is being held Mondays from 4:00 pm to 5:30 pm from Oct. 3rd at Zen Maker Lab, 280 East 1st Street, North Vancouver. It is intended for 8-12 year olds however some exceptions can be made based on experience levels. If your child is younger than 8 or older than 12, please contact us to discuss.
