Bring a Makerspace into your classroom!

Empower your students to become inventors and problem solvers as they work with our electronic components to solve challenges specific to each grade level. Students will have an opportunity to build a variety of items that spin, move, beep, light up and more!

This unique field trip fosters creativity and builds on the students’ natural curiosity to use critical thinking and problem solving skills as they apply scientific concepts to invent a variety of items. These activities foster collaborative teamwork and will ignite the inner scientist and inventor in all of them!

The possibilities are endless for this inquiry-based program!

It was something different and touched on Science skills instead of knowledge outcomes. This was something I could not have done in my own classroom.

J.E., Grade 2 TeacherBaturyn School

The Little Bits are awesome! The kids really enjoyed them and it was great to have something hands-on for the students to try. The Presenter was fantastic and kept the kids engaged and working hard the whole time!

B.C., Grade 5 TeacherGlenora School

The Presenter was fantastic! She was able to bring the content down to a simple enough level for my kids (most of my class have mild to moderate cognitive delays). She also was able to challenge the students who needed it. Overall it was a very engaging and interesting presentation.

Grade 4-6 Special Education TeacherHomesteader School

It kept the kids engaged and thinking. I could see the excitement in their eyes and hear it in their voices as each new challenge was added. I certainly would have this “Critical Thinking" event out again.
