We believe that all children can learn and succeed but not at the same pace & environment.
MakersPlace is a technology-driven, skills development company that teaches people, primarily aged 6 to 18 years old STEAM skills through a project-based approach. Our organization is STEM.org Accredited.
MakersPlace is the leading STEM/STEAM education solutions provider in Ghana. We have been successful in advocating for skills learning in the classroom by organizing demonstrations in many schools from elementary school to high school. We have also become the preferred choice for homeschoolers who want to learn skills in addition to what they are learning at home.
Technology is evolving and therefore, our children cannot be left out to be only consumers of these emerging technologies. With the right hardware and software, learning environment, and the application of the right pedagogy coupled with child-friendly STEAM coaches, your child can be assured of a globally competitive learning experience with MakersPlace.
Our curriculum contains more Do It Yourself (DIY) projects for different ages.
Our Robotics, Coding, Electronics, and 3D Modeling & Printing program is accredited by the USA based organization STEM.org.
Finding information is no longer that much of a concern; however, analyzing information to make sure it is properly curated and applicable to your needs is. While this is the single biggest challenge to developing independent learners, it is also the reason why individuals with proper research skills are the most informed people in any industry.
At MakersPlace, we currently wear several hats, but they all revolve around engineering/STEM/STEAM education and engineering labs also known as makerspaces.
We like to call them solutions makerspaces instead of engineering makerspaces because we believe that the goal of engineering is to create feasible and effective solutions. Unfortunately, students who have not yet experienced the joy we have found in the world of engineering shy away from that word and anything to do with it.
This fear even extends to engineering makerspaces and workshops which are some of the most enjoyable places in the world to some of our students and us due to the growth, learning, and creative release process we partake in while we successfully and unsuccessfully attempt to materialize our thoughts and ideas.
Because of these wonderful experiences, so many are missing, we believe a rebranding is to attract more of the youth to try it out which is why we keep pushing to spread these engineering solutions makerspaces as much as possible.
