Creating, Critical Thinking and Deep Exploration with STEAM
STEAM Centre school workshops tap into a variety of creative tools from simple scissors and markers to complex – design thinking, 3D design and electronics – to help students learn foundational, character-building skills that empower them to solve authentic problems, develop perseverance, engage in their community and develop a global perspective.
For the 2021-2022 school year, we're offering live online instruction and asynchronous virtual instruction, along with complete classroom kits of materials for each student.

Grade 1-8- The BBC micro:bit is a pocket-sized computer that introduces how software and hardware work together. It has an LED light display, buttons, sensors and many input/output features that, when programmed, let it interact with you and your world. In this workshop you will learn how computers work and get to design your own program to see how to make the microbit react. This workshop is perfect for classrooms that have microbits on hand. (Hardware not included)
Automatons are like the ancient ancestors of robots! Just like we program robots with code, we program automata with mechanical systems! Students will dive into the exciting world of automation as they use simple machines and technological problem-solving skills to determine a solution to this complex design challenge.
