We are part of the unique Jerusalem DNA
We believe in life-long learning that engages the heart, mind, and hands.
In 2020, we opened the PICO Kids Makerspace, housed in the heart of Talpiot, Jerusalem. The Makerspace is a large, open space with the most up-to-date equipment, where kids realize dreams by taking their ideas from design to construction. The Makerspace uses collaborative workshops to help kids design solutions, master advanced manufacturing skills and effectively communicate their innovations. The PICO Kids Makerspace houses in-school programs by day and serves as the base for our after-school programs and events.I want to visit!
“Knowledge is readily available to anyone in this generation. What children need is a strong set of skills, values and passion to better prepare them for the present and the future. ”
My son waits for PICO Kids every week! He has a hard time in school concentrating and feeling part of the class and studies since COVID, but at PICO Kids hes really turned into a leader. He actively participates, works in a team and feels part of something great. ”
Parents of PICO Kids
“Before I joined PICO, I was a shy and quiet girl, and I didn’t have the confidence to speak up, but the moment I joined, I made important connections and learned how to express myself.” ”
