Ontario Science Centre/STEAMLabs Maker Club


The Ontario Science Centre is partnering with STEAMLabs for a new series of Saturday workshops for kids aged 6-13 this fall. Participants will explore science, technology, engineering, art and math in these exciting and intensive workshops. Held in the unique setting of the Science Centre, participants are sure to be inspired to experience what it means to be a Maker, from idea to finished product.

Workshops start on October 13 and will be held every Saturday through to November 24, 2018, for seven sessions total.

For Ages 6-7 - Saturdays 9:30am – 11:30am

Calling all junior inventors! This exciting workshop focuses on individual and group exploration of creative and design thinking through inquiry, play, skill building, and – most of all - fun! Participants will work with maker-educators from STEAMLabs and the Ontario Science Centre in the dynamic environment of the Science Centre’s exhibitions and classrooms. Through experimentation with a range of materials, tools, and technology they’ll explore, imagine, and bring their ideas to life.

For Ages 8-10 – Saturdays 12:00pm – 2:00pm
Members $280 | Non-members $357

If you can imagine it, you can make it! This workshop focuses on the fundamental skills of making and programming. By taking part in games, storytelling and making, participants will hone their skills to design a project. Using tools, craft materials and digital fabrication tools, including 3D printers and a laser cutter, the project will come to life – along with an understanding of concepts in engineering and computer programming.

For Ages 11-13 – Saturdays 2:30pm – 5:30pm
Members $399 | Non-members $469

Do you often dream up ideas and inventions, and want a chance to see them in the real world? Using a combination of high tech tools (3D printing, laser cutting, electronics), wood working and craft, we provide the mentorship and structure to help you turn your sketched ideas into working prototypes, led by your own interests, imagination and ingenuity.

Watch for details of future sessions coming soon!
