Experiences

Triad Youth Makers offers a variety of maker-learning experiences for youth, families, and “kids of all ages”. Our target age range is 10-17 years old, but we love to work with learners of ALL ages.

We offer experiences designed from 2 hours (minimum) to several months long. Each experience can be tailored to your individual or group needs.

We use a project-based approach in all of our learning experiences. Learn more about our Project-Based Learning Experience (PBLE) model.
