Education

 

Who We Are

With computer literacy becoming increasingly important, we aim to act as a resource that will facilitate STEM (Science Technology Engineering & Math) education. Our fundamental goal is to give students access to engaging, low-cost and easy-to-navigate tools that will make STEM education as easy and enjoyable as we believe it should be. Our educational programming is designed to encourage students to explore and apply what they have learned outside of the classroom. We believe that our tools can provide a head start to learners of all ages.

 

 

We use our kit to promote authentic learning experiences. Authentic learning emphasizes using open-ended problems in which students can ‘learn how to learn’ through collaborative inquiry within a community. We design lessons through a student-centered approach to empower and encourage the students to direct their own learning experience.

We believe that learning is an individual experience, and therefore, the education process should begin with the student’s current ability, offer a variety of pathways for solution generation through multiple instructional approaches, and finally encourage students to reflect on their decisions and take ownership of both the positive and negative outcomes of the collaborative solutions.

Our educational demonstrations and activities can take place at schools, libraries, museums, makerspaces, camps, recreation and tutoring centers, and more. We do on-site workshops and programming where students learn scientific principles using our kit. Learners apply these skills to create a wide variety of different projects. We design these experiences based on the needs of each learning space, tailored to specific needs or learning outcomes.

 

Our Services

Programs range from 1 day - 16 weeks. Each session can be between 45 minutes and 8 hours long and can be run several days in a row, or once a week. Workshop length and topics are chosen to fit your needs and all attendees can be given the option to take home the kit and projects. We run also run summer day camp and march break camp programming delivering specialized programming where learners can engage with science and technology.

 

School Visits

We do in-class workshops and programs where we teach students how to use our kit and apply it to numerous projects with different learning outcomes and scientific principles. 

 

Library Pop-Ups

We visit and set up shop in your learning institution or library and present various demonstrations of projects in action!

 

After School Workshop Series

We run after-school programs in small groups where we teach students how to use our kit and create all kinds of D.I.Y. projects that they can take home (along with the kit)! Programs range from 4-16 weeks.

 

Maker Camp

We run a summer day camp where kids can learn about and have full access to all of our technology. For a full week, kids will learn how to design, construct and take apart. We will complete a variety of science, engineering, and art projects.

 

Educational Kits

We can provide bulk educational kits that teach foundational principals in coding and engineering, run your own workshops and let the attendees take home something unique and memorable!

 

Staff Training

We teach teachers! We provide educators with all the necessary tools and manuals so that they can easily teach our program in their classes.

 

Events & Community Collaboration

We work from our own little Makerspace in Montreal and are very involved with the community. Send us an email and we can collaborate! Want something unique at your event, hackathon, or conference? We participate in Maker, engineering, education, digital art, and robotics events. For larger events, we can lead staff training to offer a unique experience to your attendees or we can bring our own staff to host programming.

 

Makerspace Consultation 

 We can help you set up an amazing functional Makerspace with all the right tools. Consult our experienced team so that we can help you build your own creative space.  

Learn fundamental programming skills or more advanced Arduino projects and C programming. Learn how to facilitate authentic learning experiences in the classroom. We provide educators with all the necessary tools and manuals so that they can easily teach our program in their classes. We teach teachers how to offer our programming with starter and add-on kits. We help Makerspaces set up an amazing functional creative space with all the right tools. We offer consultation services and sales of our kits to makerspaces and their stakeholders.

We are also registered to import machinery to Canada and are positioned to resell makerspace products. We can also provide machine maintenance and support. These large machines can be very difficult to source for Makerspaces and hard to maintain. Purchasing CNC machinery for small business can be intimidating and we can help. We can also provide training to your staff about how to use and care for your machines.
