Say hello to Mind Lab Kids!
So how does it work?
Taking the challenge
One of our Superhero Edtech Educators uploads a challenge, and shows how they did it!
Collaborating and creating
Your little one hunts around the house for the ingredients, gets busy making it, and captures their process.
They upload the response to the site to show their besties how it's done!
See what our whizzes have created so far!
Fun & creative, at home
A series of home-based challenges designed to encourage kids to explore, experiment and share by solving problems with items they can find at home.
Videos are created in our studio and kids respond by recording their at-home attempt and sharing it online.
Safe and secure
The online safety of our users is one of our major priorities and the platform is closely and regularly monitored to ensure all postings and activity comply with our House Rules.
Designed for 5-12 year olds
Whether it’s a good giggle, the opportunity to be silly while creating, the freedom to explore or a dose of encouragement, we provide it all.
Who created Mind Lab Kids?
Mind Lab Kids has been developed by The Mind Lab, award-winning providers of science, tech & discovery learning experiences for young people and New Zealand’s dedicated postgraduate institute for contemporary education.
How much does it cost?
It's completely free for Kiwi kids thanks to the Genesis School-gen programme!
What if I have multiple kids who want to join?
We believe every child should shine with their own video content! One parent / guardian account can have up to four children associated with it, and each child will get their own username and password to access their uploads and favourite videos.
All payment and subscription information is held under the parent / guardian account, and parents / guardians can change the usernames / passwords at any time, as well as deleting or adding accounts for children under their subscription.
