STEM and Life Workshops

We offer various workshops for groups of students for a range of ages. If a topic isn't listed here, just mention it to us and we could probably develop something.

Schools are $160 for one hour or $200 for two hours (up to 30 students) plus $10 per half hour from Guelph.

Why Choose Us?

  • Every workshop has a hands-on activity that directly relates to the lesson.
  • Students get to keep what they make and continue to learn/develop once we're gone.
  • We follow the Ontario Curriculum based on Grade expectations.
  • We are realistic. When we run an engineering workshop we don't tell students that "today we will be engineers". Instead, we mention what engineers are and what they do, and we then say that we're going to practice some of the skills that engineers use such as problem solving, teamwork, communication, etc.
