Toronto Tool Library is excited to partner with STEAMLabs to bring their signature educational programs to our Danforth Location!
We are kicking off our partnership this March Break with the launch of week-long camps for kids and teens at both our east-end location as well as STEAMLab‘s downtown location. We’ve got a Robotics Camps scheduled at both locations and a Minecraft Camp scheduled at STEAMLabs that will keep your creative kid busy all week – whether you’re downtown or in Toronto’s east end!

Inspired by everyone’s favourite video games, kids will work in small groups to bring virtual video games to life and design physical robotic games with our high tech tools. Past robot games have included capture the flag, racing, obstacle courses, stage performances & tricks, and a battle arena. Regardless of what games and robots we build – there will be opportunities for success and celebration for all participants and their robots.
What will they learn?
- Designing in 2D and 3D
- Laser Cutting
- 3D printing
- Simple circuits (LEDs and simple mechanisms)
- Robotics (Neopixels and motors)
- Arduino programming
Note: robot projects are made in groups – therefore, these are not individual projects that are then taken home by participants at the end of camp. If participants want to take parts of their group project home and it is possible to do so, we work out dividing the parts between the groups as fairly as we can!

Toronto Tool Library has established a long-term partnership with STEAMLabs to deliver their signature programs at our Danforth location with the goal of bringing tech-education programming to more communities within Toronto. A wide range of educational programs for kids & teens is planned to launch like March Break camps, Summer Camps, and kids birthday parties. Keep on the lookout for new programming announcements to come.
STEAMLabs is a community makerspace where people of all ages and abilities come together to practice digital fabrication, coding, hands-on making & electronics.
