Suzanne Huang

General Studies Principal
at Shalhevet Girls High School

I attended a professional development workshop at Zen Maker Lab and it was one of the best Pro-D's I have ever attended in my 10 year teaching career.

The projects perfectly align with the B.C. Applied Design, Skills and Technologies curriculum. I would highly recommend Zen Maker Lab to all creative and curious minds

​Mark J Wlodyka

Convenor Engineering
Capilano University

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.
