    The Our Kids review of Zen Maker Lab

    our take

    The best STEAM camps offer hands-on learning combined with innovative teaching techniques. Zen Maker Lab does just that. Cyri Jones started Zen Maker Lab at the beginning of the maker lab craze, after realizing that a more structured way of teaching children to use new and future technology made more sense. Fostering kids’ natural curiosity, the programs for Zen Maker Lab have been developed and redefined over the past 10 years. The focus is on empowering kids to be designers and makers and to turn their own ideas into reality. Spending time building machines, coding, and connecting and collaborating with peers, the Zen Maker Lab curriculum has a design–make–play approach. Kids can see the results of their efforts immediately, boosting confidence and inspiring them to take risks. Making mistakes is mandatory as kids learn and discover what works. A diverse team also makes the difference, with the instructors having varied backgrounds, but they’re all passionate about STEM and what it can mean to the world.


    Review(s) of Zen Maker Lab

    Pierre (Parent)Awesome instructors

    Kids programs are innovative and creative. The instructors are knowledgeable in their fields of expertise. My son learned a lot with ZenMaker and look up to the instructors there.

    Suzanne Huang (Parent)Great first experience in robotic programs

    This is my son’s first robotics camp. He enjoys the hands-on lecturing style and the combination of building machine, coding, and connecting with his classmates on STEM. The facility is very welcoming and provides a laid-back vibe for students to learn and develop their interest and curiosity in robotics. We will be back for more session ... Read More

    Olivia Lasting (Parent)Both of my daughters really enjoyed their summer camps

    Both of my daughters really enjoyed the camp (they said it was their favourite camp of the summer!), and they couldn't wait to tell and show us everything they learned. I know they were also really excited about seeing young women lead the camp and being role models for them and other girls interested in STEM subjects. I would have no hesitation recommending Zen Maker Lab to any family ... Read More

    Wiky Su (Parent)Fun take home projects

    Dylan was so excited to share with me what he did. He took his little project back home and explained me how it worked very confidently. He learned a lot from the summer camp he took. The best part is that he did it on his own with the help from teachers. Dylan can't wait to join more programs ... Read More

    Director's Message

    Cyri Jones, President

    We are excited and happy to see how far we have come with the idea of bringing maker lab initiatives and STEAM curriculum to children, youth, and young adults through hands-on projects.

    It all started back in 2013, when maker labs were just starting to become popular, and we were providing service work to different small companies and locals. One day one client came with his son and daughter to our maker lab, and they both stayed staring at a 3D printer that was running and asking several questions for the whole time we were meeting with him. That's when we had an aha! moment, and realized that children are naturally curious, and we were missing on an opportunity to help them get familiar and educate them on this future technologies. We decided to run a pilot program with around 20 participants, where children learned to assemble their own 3D printers, this was a total success with more interest than expected. That's when we decided to shift our focus towards children's education and curriculum development. 

    We can't believe this coming year it's join to be our 10 years anniversary, and we can't wait to keep empowering the next generation of designers, makers, and healthy and active citizens. 

    Cyri Jones
    President
