With students spending more time learning from home, we would like to provide opportunities to participate in workshops that we would typically deliver in-person at local schools!

Join us this spring for a range of curriculum-linked and STEM topics with hands-on activities!

All workshops will require a device with Internet, a camera, and a microphone.

If you are a teacher, with a full class online, book a group session here.
