Steamoji is a maker academy for kids ages 5-18 that trains builders, makers, inventors and entrepreneurs. We believe the best way to prepare for a world of accelerating change is to train our children with the foundational skills and mindsets to build solutions to the problems of their future.
Technological change is accelerating. Many parents feel STEAM subjects (science, technology, engineering, arts and math) are important to help prepare their children the careers of their future, but see schools more focused on traditional studies.
Steamoji’s 400-hour Build to Solve™ curriculum is designed to fill this gap in a structured and reinforcing fashion across five subjects pathways: fabrication, physical computing, engineering, digital arts and applied design. Students are taught basic skills, then encouraged to practically apply them in a spirit of “Build to Solve.”
A Steamoji membership includes 8 directed sessions per month and 4 drop-in sessions. Directed sessions are led by short video clips at a workstation and are supported by facilitators who help the ‘apprentices’ understand what they need to do and overcome any obstacles that might arise. Drop-in sessions are designed for apprentices to build on what they learned by designing a product of their imagination.
We offer a range of Summer, Winter and Spring Break camps designed to keep your child engaged during school breaks. Camps run weekly from 9am-3pm, Monday to Friday, with both full-day and half-day options available. For more information, click here.
At School and Online
Steamoji’s 10-week Build to Solve™ Intro program compliments and enriches children’s school studies by exposing them to new technologies in fabrication, physical computing, engineering and digital arts. With these foundational skills, students are then challenged with problems and encouraged to imagine, create and improve their own solutions. This program is available at schools in Kerrisdale, Kitsilano or West Vancouver or online.
