Workshops by Topic

  • 3D Printing

    Grade 5 to Grade 12

    Make your creations come to life with 3D Printing! In this activity the students will be introduced to the Tinkercad software where they will engineer their own designs on a 3D scale. Then sit back and watch the designs print layer by layer.

  • Codemakers Programming

    Grade 1 to Grade 8

    In this explorative workshop, students will be introduced to the fundamental concepts of coding and learn about its applications on a larger scale. This programming will look into the various areas of STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) that coding plays a role in and how it is applied in everyday life.

  • Coding with Micro:bits

    Grade 5 to Grade 12

    In this interactive workshop, students will be programming Micro:bit using simplified JavaScript coding to complete a number of tasks such as spelling, playing music and even helping complete math equations. They will also explore the various applications of programming in STEM (science, technology, engineering and math).

  • Dash and Dot

    Kindergarten to Grade 4

    In this workshop, students will be introduced to the basics of programming with the help of Dash the robot! Students will utilize block coding to program Dash to make its way through a maze, developing skills of estimation and orientation while comprehending coding fundamentals. Students will also be tasked with helping Dash find their best friend Dot through the use of sensors.

  • Electricity

    Grades 9 to 12

    In this interactive workshop, students will explore the world of electrical engineering and its role in powering the world around us. Basic concepts and terminology will be introduced and expanded on using magnetic circuits with a wide range of inputs and outputs.

  • Little Bits

    Grade 5 to Grade 8

    Explore the world of electrical engineering using electronic building blocks.  Students will be presented with a design challenge, and using the engineering design process and a budget, they will explore electricity and develop creative solutions to everyday problems.  Imagine the unlimited possibilities!

  • Makey Makey

    Grade 5 to Grade 8 

    Explore the wonderful world of electricity and its applications in everyday life! In this hands-on workshop, students will utilize everyday objects to create innovate circuits that control computer functions. With the help of the engineering design process, older students will also learn the fundamentals of coding.

  • Ozobots

    Kindergarten to Grade 8

    Explore the electromagnetic spectrum with the help of Ozobots! This workshop delves into the science of visible light through constructing spectroscopes and engineering paper pathways for the Ozobot to follow based on colour identification. If your class is ready for a challenge, students will code the Ozobot using drag and drop programming to help them navigate through various pathways.

  • Programmable Electric Car

    Grade 5 to 8

    Learn the fundamentals of drag and drop programming with our friend mBot, the robot! In this workshop, students will learn how to program the mBot to maneuver through various obstacles. In addition, students will utilize the engineering design process to create structures that help the mBot complete tasks such as popping a balloon or scoring the winning goal.
