Vocational Skill Development
At MakersLoft, we believe in facilitating learning through self discovery and collaboration with other students and trained mentors, within a prepared environment. Our studio is fully-fitted with lots of stimulating materials like Lego educational kits, 3D printer, 3D Doodling Pens, Robotics, Electronics, and STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering & Maths) kits, hand and power tools etc. We help develop these 21st century skills in our students: Creativity and imagination, Critical thinking, Problem solving and Collaboration and teamwork
Our focus is on ‘process’ (of learning) rather than ‘product’ (what is made) or output (grades)
What is STEM Education and why we used LEGO for our STEM programs?
STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) education is a window to understanding the building blocks of life, the universe and everything. It gives us tools to explore, question, navigate in, and even invent the world we live in – skills that can and will be applied in every field of work and play.
For most of us, STEM fields are either wildly exciting and inspiring or extremely daunting concepts that may be difficult to relate to. They often get a reputation as the “hard” sciences. Hard, both as in difficult to grasp and learn, but also with a reputation of being rigid, leaving very little, if any, room for creativity or imagination.
LEGO® STEM kits are designed keeping in mind that curiosity, fun, and creativity are major drivers in getting kids excited about science. They can play and experiment their way from basic to advanced STEM skills. (And that’s a scientific fact!)
“I strongly believe that in this fast changing world where technology is slated to rule our tomorrow; critical thinking skills along with innovative and independent thinking and creative acumen with problem solving skills are the need of the hour and Makersloft provides the apt platform to the little minds to hone these skills and to fortify their future.”
Satabdi G Bhattacharjee, Principal, The Newtown School
“I searched the Internet and got to know about Kolkata’s Makerspace – Makersloft. I immediately visited and got myself enrolled. I did the beginners session in EV3 robotics and loved it. I participated in FLL and I along with my team went a long way upto nationals all thanks to our excellent coaches and mentors. Makerloft is a place which is now more than a class to me. It’s a place which has taught me how important creativity is!”
Arka Chaudhuri, student of class 6, La Martiniere for Boys
“Makersloft has broken new ground by providing a platform for DIY in Kolkata. This facility through its various offerings such as 3D printing, robotics, laser cutting, wood working etc provides an excellent opportunity for touch and feel activities which are fast disappearing behind virtual screens. My son is passionately into robotics and I can personally vouch for the Robotics staff and facilities there. Robotics and participating in the WRO has made him more confident, assertive, cooperative and better at communication besides improving his problem identification and solving skills.”
