Maker Studio

The Maker Studio Story

Created by two passionate dads, and engineers, Maker Studio gives creative kids the tools to inspire innovation. Each of the three sets includes the necessary parts to transform ordinary, household objects into working, kinetic machines. Through building and problem solving, creative kids gain confidence and develop essential STEM skills. Ages 7 to adult.

Get Building

We give your little maker 4 builds, 10 Engineering Challenges and the parts you need to MAKE. If you’re just getting started, step-by-step building instructions will help you and your creative kid along the way. Just find the recyclable objects you need and bring the imagination to make something totally unique.LEARN MORE

Be Creative

The key to Maker Studio is to try different things. Designed as an open-ended construction set, the building possibilities are endless. All of the parts can be used again and again to create new machines. Explore your recycling bin and craft drawers and let your little maker have fun assembling things in various ways to see what your creative kid can come up with.

Take a Maker Challenge

“Use your machine to lift a soup can.” As your creative kid experiments and problem solves, your little maker will develop the spatial skills, executive function and sequential reasoning needed to be a 21st century STEM thinker.
