In the future, many technologies and entire industries will change in unimaginable ways. Growing our children's abilities to adapt to new technologies and instilling a passion to make their ideas into reality; that is the key to prepare for the unknown future.
Robotics integrates all STEM fields - electronics, mechanics, math, computer science and more. The sense of accomplishment from making experiences boosts our children’s self-esteem and will equip them with strong and positive attitudes towards life’s challenges.
Coding is an essential life skill our children should have in the fast changing world. Coding develops critical thinking perspectives and problem solving skills. Children will have the skills to apply many abstract concepts to develop their ideas.
MaKaboom’s commitment to make world a better place
We believe that a coding/making education is a powerful leverage to transform kids’ lives and the communities they live in. We make an effort to reach out to kids who are not as fortunate as us and provide them with opportunity to learn this vast world of coding/making. We believe that all children should benefit from the fast advancing technology and the opportunities it presents.
1. We provide training to local/global non-profit organizations to run our workshops locally and globally to reach out to kids who do not have opportunity to learn it.
2. We continuously invest in programs we will provide to children in impoverished neighborhoods.
3. We create volunteer opportunities for MaKaKids so they can broaden their perspective and challenge themselves to think globally.
4. We will take donations (LEGO®, tech toys, old cellphones, notebooks, etc.) and send them to Tanzania.
