An imaginative afternoon at Iqaluit Makerspace

Children learn how to make animations and video games at the Iqaluit Makerspace on May 1. “My favourite part is that we get to do art,” said 10-year-old Abby Alainga, on the bottom right. “Me and Abby made a game called Ice Breaker,” said Leah Ray Higdon, 9, to her left. “You have to climb icebergs without falling into the water.” The Makerspace program, run by Pingguaq, opened in September 2018 and offers a daily after-school program that focuses on teaching kids coding and digital arts. That day there were 17 kids in attendance, from 9 years old to 13. (Photo by Thomas Rohner)
