virtual afterschool Inventor's Club

virtual afterschool Inventor’s Club

MakerState’s Virtual Afterschool Inventor’s Club offers weekly after school STEM programming for children ages 6-14. We’ve got live instructors and new projects every session as we’ve created a true virtual makerspace this fall for our budding engineers. Let’s build together with LEGO Virtual Robotics, Rocket Science, TinkerCAD, Minecraft, Scratch by MIT, Roblox and more! Our weekly 50 minute sessions focus on team-building, critical thinking and problem solving through relevant STEM concepts that encourage students to learn in creative ways that extend to life beyond the computer world.

Safety First

We practice online safety & privacy guidelines while asking each of our students to conduct themselves responsibly and kindly.

Excellent Staff

Live STEM instructors from NYC’s finest universities. We ensure each young engineer is engaged with our 8:1 ratio.
