My daughter did the first 2 projects before she had to leave for camp and she was raving about it. I like that they can progress at their own speed and take the year to complete it. The feedback is great and the kids really feel involved.

Deborah L.
from Lewisham
My daughter loves the projects, is inspired by other kid's work and has been drawing loads since we joined. She also loves doing the videos. Before DIY there wasn't a safe platform for her to do this on. I am reassured by the lengths you go to to keep the kids safe.
Carmela B.
from Madrid
It is a fresh way to look at things. It has a lot more to do with the way my daughter thinks and with what she naturally does than all those textbooks and theory.

My son is an academic outlier. We've been searching for a mentor for him. Finding someone with time, affordability, difficult. DIY is a fantastic solution to this!

My daughter is doing Drawing Bootcamp and the projects put a fun twist on creating. Before DIY she enjoyed drawing and creating, but wasn't always aware of what to do or create. DIY generates fun ideas for her that are easy to complete so she feels a sense of accomplishment.
Michaela P.
from Victoria
After two weeks the kids are still really interested in making more engineering masterpieces. Their bedroom has become one enormous marble run using books, bits of LEGO, cushions, and random things from the kitchen. I can totally see this craze lasting for months! Thanks!
Nikki W.
from Colorado
So far DIY has been great. It is a little scary for me to encourage children to post things on the internet. Letting my daughter post videos took me a little getting used to but I now realize DIY is a secure environment. My daughter loves it and I love that I get an email for each post. Thank you for the program!
Angela D.
from Tennessee
It's been fun so far. Great experience for my son. There are not many opportunities to do things like this in our community, so I would recommend it to other creative kids.
Joelle C.
from Washington
The projects are in a sweet spot between structure and openness. There's good support if needed, and I love the moderated community aspect.

We are raising kids in a small town in a school system that revolves around sports which my child cares nothing about. This has been great for my daughter to help with her self confidence in her own art and uplifting others by commenting on their art.
Alicia M.
from Louisiana
I really appreciate the feedback my son gets on his projects and how he is positively challenged by someone outside of our home.
Czarina L.
from British Columbia
It's fun and easy to use, my 9 and 6 year old do it and there is always feedback and help on line. They said they love how many ideas they get from one concept and they still have freedom to work from there. Thanks for DIY!
Kristy B.
from Texas
I think it creates such an amazing network of kids that share the same interest. DIY encourages collaboration and shows that trying and failing is OK!
Victoria G.
from Illinois
My son was excited to see the things he would build in the engineering project and had fun getting items around the house to create his own project. What I really like is that DIY wants kids to share their failures. I think there is so much pressure in the rest of the world to be perfect but DIY's acceptance of failures helps kids to think through a problems and solve them.
Donna T.
from Leeds
We are an autonomous education family, and we had been struggling to help our son fulfill his ambition of becoming an online Minecraft Show host - then along came DIY! He is so happy, switched on, and interested. Already his confidence has grown, his imagination is broadening, and he is even planning future shows! We love it!

DIY is fantastic. I am the mother of a high-functioning autistic kid and I often struggle to find something that interests him and keeps him learning. Your website was just what I was looking for. The video lengths are perfect and the clear explanations works wonders with children on the autism spectrum!
Nusrat A.

My daughter says it's really fun. She likes how it offers you projects she can do on her own. She also enjoys the feedback and seeing other's artwork.
Cynthia D.

Kids are enjoying it! I was a little surprised by the video-upload aspect, but it's motivating for the kids. We have been jumping around from activity to activity. It has gotten us doing a lot of "inventing" and tinkering and I'm pretty pleased!
Anne P.
from Queensland
Innovative well researched format.
