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

They provide excellent hands on training and guidance to young students in Lego Robotics. Under their tutelage, teams have qualified and won in WRO in the past. It is indeed a pleasure to see students pre-occupied for hours in building and programming Lego robots at Makersloft while it is challenging to hold their attention within confines of a classroom. I really hope more students will get engaged in hands-on-activities through such initiatives.” – Madhuri Katti, senior section Physics teacher, Mahadevi Birla World Academy


P1140303“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.” – Jaideep Chanda, parent of a 12 year old

I have an eight year old boy and at times I channelize, his infinite energy levels, unending curiosity level positively. Activities offered at MakersLoft are quite engrossing, challenging and full of creativity that adds positive value to the overall development of the child.  The Scratch session is fantastic solution to the challenge of constant exposure to screen (laptop, computers, phones, tablet, iPad) which as parents we find very worrisome.” – Anisha Chaturvedi, mother of an 8yr old 

rg.jpg“MakersLoft – one of its kind in Kolkata ..A step towards revolution ..change in learning .. in the way a kid thinks , the process !! It is an essential platform which was required in the city!!” – Ragini Goyal, mother of a 6yr old

“MakersLoft radiates a different kind of energy. If you are a tinkerer by nature and you are not allowed to deconstruct things at home, then MakersLoft is the place for you. You may take a robot apart and put it back piece by piece  or you may take an old tape recorder apart and salvage the parts that are still working or you may take apart the grandfather clock that refuses to keep time and put the gears to some other use. If you are stuck, there will be some others to help you.If gears and wheels are not your cup of tea, you may simply spend hours creating pottery with lumps of clay or making jewelry with scraps of cloth or create your own installation with broken chairs. MakersLoft is a place where you can be ‘hands on’ without any inhibitions.” – Subha Das Mollick, Media teacher and Documentary Filmmaker, she was the head of the Film Studies and Mass Communication Department at the St. Xavier’s College, Kolkata.

lia“I highly recommend MakersLoft’s kids activities.  The opportunity to be creative is something that is sorely lacking for kids in Kolkata but Makers Loft provides this opportunity.  Parents wishing to support their kids’ creativity and critical thinking skills should definitely send their kids here.  My son has loved everything he’s attended in MakersLoft, he absolutely loves the place!” – Lia Delancey, mother of a 7yr old

“MakersLoft is a one of its kind innovation space for the city of Kolkata. What i simply love about MakersLoft is its diverse set of activities which is versatile enough for every age group. The makerspace in Ballygunge is an Invention Hub for budding entrepreneurs and creation space for art lovers. MakersLoft is doing a brilliant job in unlocking the creative streak of the citizen of Kolkata. Youth has tremendous potential to build products and ideas to fulfil their entrepreneurial ambition. I had a chance to explore the makerspace and it was by far the most adventurous places I have ever visited.” – Siddharth Agarwal, President of AIESEC, Kolkata


piyaligupta“For anyone who wants to create something, MakersLoft is a wonderland. Large work tables with trays full of fascinating things and a 3D Printer! The children were thrilled. On the final day each group had to give a formal presentation. This, for me, was the best part-the process of design thinking. Meghna Bhutoria told them about smarter ways of solving each problem. Children who had never been heard in class, spoke with confidence and clarity. They thoroughly enjoyed themselves and want to come back to learn more.”- Piyali Gupta, Teacher, Akshar school
