Our after-school programs consist of 8, two-hour sessions, that run on a weekly basis. Our goal is to create a safe, community-minded space where Young Makers can develop their ideas, explore methods, and develop confidence as Makers!

 

 


Robot & Obstacle Course

Our most popular beginner course, the Obstacle Course and Robot Build works to foster a strong sense of collaborative problem solving skills through a large-scale obstacle course team build. Participants will work together to design and build an obstacle course and independently work to create robots that they will then use to navigate the “opposing” team’s obstacle course. Participants will develop knowledge of basic robotics, design, and structural engineering, while having ample opportunity to learn how to use the laser cutter as well as various power & hand tools.

Suitable for Young Makers age 8+

Date: Thursday, October 5th – November 23rd

Time: 4 p.m.- 6 p.m.

Cost: $275

Where: East-end location (1803 Danforth Ave.)

Maker Sampler

Maker Sampler is a program designed to introduce Young Makers to the exciting world of MAKING. Throughout the 8-week program, participants will dabble in 3D printing, woodworking, laser cutting, programming, designing, and electronics. They will be introduced to a lot of cool, very accessible tools such as TinkerCAD, and 123D-Make.

While we like to explore the program’s curriculum options with our group of Young Makers before settling firmly on anything, this program will include: an intro to 3D printing with a tutorial in TinkerCAD, a laser-cutting project, use of tools (including power tools in our fully outfitted woodshop), and an exploration of circuits.

Suitable for Young Makers age 8+

Date: Tuesday, October 3rd – November 21st

Time: 4 p.m.- 6 p.m.

Cost: $275

The Toronto Tool Library constantly strives to make our community better! In this eight-week after-school program, Young Makers will focus on projects that do just that. Participants will make bee hotels and bird houses to take home (or donate to a community garden). Ultimately the big project will be working together to build a Little Free Library for a decided upon area in the community.

This program focuses on community, collaborative planning, and woodworking. Under the close guidance of our facilitators, Young Makers will learn how to safely operate woodworking tools such as the chop saw, drill press, bandsaw, belt sander, and much more!

Suitable for Young Makers age 10+

Date: Wednesday, October 4th – November 22nd

Time: 4 p.m.- 6 p.m.

Cost: $275
