MakerKids, founded by Next Founders alumna Jennifer Turliuk, has announced it is expanding its robotics, coding, and Minecraft programs with a franchise in the Toronto neighbourhood of Leaside. This new franchise will be the second MakerKids location, with the company’s first located on Bloor St. West.
MakerKids’ education model looks to develop future leaders, designers, and engineers to face a new generation of challenges in tech. Through its programs, participants have presented their projects on national television and started their own businesses with the skills they’ve learned.
“We’ve had overwhelming interest from all over the world in our innovative curriculum and teaching philosophy that focuses on empowering children to develop real-life skills and a positive relationship with technology,” said MakerKids’ CEO, Jennifer Turliuk.
