“The maker lab environment gives kids the chance to learn design thinking, prototyping and even in some cases kids are commercializing the product ideas they come up with. I have incorporated this unique lab environment into my university engineering design class with the students successfully fabricating their own very creative designs.”


Mark J Wlodyka, Engineering Instructor, Capilano University

“We have been able to bounce our creative ideas around & obtain some terrific feedback from the smart people from the maker lab. We have been able to include some of our leading edge technology into the kids projects and the maker lab equipment. We are amazed at what the kids can make.”


Steve Swift, President – SOC Robotics.

“The tools & training is what sets this program apart from any other workshop I’ve ever seen – there’s nothing like it in Canada.”


John Biehler, One of Canada’s top 3D Printing experts, teacher & author.

“This stuff is so new that most universities don’t even offer these skills yet. The lab environment allows you to learn alongside many other like-minded students.
We also have some great proto-typing tools where kids are getting excited about commercializing some of the products they come up with.”


Kimball Andersen, Zen Lab Operations
