At-Home Maker’s Lab

Do you want to be the next Steve Jobs or Elon Musk? This course is for you! Flex your creativity and problem-solving skills by inventing new products and creating real prototypes. Make use of all that junk you have lying in your house – like cardboard boxes, duct tape, yarn, and toilet paper rolls and turn it into real, working innovations that could change the world. By the end of the 5-session program, kids will have made several prototypes, one being their very own arcade game!

"We highly recommend the BBK Network because it gives kids new ideas for learning. It helps them, you know, think about things and get exposed to things that are new and different. And we highly recommend that you give it a shot if you haven't already. So thanks BBK. Coding is my favourite. So then I can make my own special things. Greta's been spending all this extra time coding after each class and trying to learn herself."

"My 9 year old was registered for the unlimited BBK Network membership this summer as well as the Accelerator course, How to Build an Online Business. He enrolled in many of the suite of courses available, ranging from financial literacy and entrepreneurship to writing to chess. I have recommended BBK to other parents and will be keeping an eye out on upcoming BBK programs. Thank you for the work that your team does! It is much appreciated by parents and children alike, especially during these uncertain times."
