Workshops

Build Your Robot Reindeer with Strawbees!

Join us for a fun, hands-on workshop, where you’ll build your very own robot reindeer that can run and light up! Learn about microcontrollers and servo motors, and see how even small changes in code can make a big difference to how your reindeer moves!

Along the way, we’ll learn English related to travel and speed: words like “fast” and “faster”, “slow” and “slower”, “smooth” and “bumpy”, and how these apply to different modes of transportation today!

Help Santa Find the Way with Sphero!

Santa’s got a busy night delivering presents! Help guide his sleigh from house to house by programming little robot Sphero. Learn different ways to communicate with computers, how they ‘think,’ and how we can use code to give our instructions to them.

On the English front, this workshop will introduce and reinforce directional commands: left and right, forwards and backwards, turning and going straight. Practical for giving and understanding everyday directions… and very important in making sure Santa doesn’t get lost!

Jingle Bell Jam session with Electronic Circuits

We bet you’ve never heard Christmas carols played this way before… Connect everyday fruits to the computer using circuits, then sync your actions to the music and rock out! A great introduction to circuitry, creative computing, and a glimpse into how technology and music can come together.

Our English themes for this workshop: colours, and fruits and vegetables! From yellow bananas to red apples and green cucumbers – learning English has never been so memorable (or delicious)!
