Why Makers of Tomorrow Started

The Internet of Things is the future of technology, yet underserved students with limited exposure to electronic gadgets and a strong engineering curriculum are falling behind in this universal movement. Makers of Tomorrow aims to instill the maker culture of innovation and creativity in every student. By experimenting with various electronic parts and making even the simplest of devices, students can express their scientific creativity and unlock their full STEM potential. Early exposure to engineering can bolster these students' confidence in their own abilities, preparing them to take the Silicon Valley tech industry by storm.

Hands-On Activities

The most effective way by which young students can internalize new concepts while enjoying themselves is through fun activities. Makers of Tomorrow strives to incorporate exciting circuitry and coding projects into every lesson.

TESTIMONIALS

"I took one look at the diagram of the circuit we had to build, and it looked so hard. But I didn't give up - me and my group stuck through it together. In the end, we had a lot of fun and our circuit worked! I never knew I had it in me!"

"What I enjoyed most was the use of games and hands-on activities to enhance the new concepts, including electricity, the cloud, sensors, resistors, and machine learning. I was also really excited to see my kids' circuits work!"
