City of Ottawa In-Person and Virtual Fall Program Registration Now Open

Copy of In-Person Workshops & Classes for Spring 2022 - May 3 22

Tablets for Robots

"Mr. Dudley has been helping kids discover the joy of LEGO robotics through hands-on programming and building for many years and these opportunities to take a weekly class with others who are also interested in LEGO robotics can’t be beat,"  Rebecca Stanisic, SavvyMom.ca 

Orange STEM has delivered thousands of LEGO® workshops and classes to children 5-14 as well as to adults involved in team building and teachers training to be Technology Educators.  

Our wide range of LEGO programs is available through City of Ottawa recreation centres across the city, and also at independent centres including Dovercourt, the Old Ottawa South Firehall, Manor Park and the Soloway Jewish Community Centre. Many of our recreation programs are offered as one-time workshops or as multi-week classes.    

Safety-Modified In-Person Programs

Join us in-person this Spring for one or more of our safety-modified programs at City of Ottawa Recreation Centres, the Soloway Jewish Community Centre, Dovercourt, the Old Ottawa South Firehall, and Manor Park Community Centre.  

Orange STEM Education has many safety protocols in place for all in-person learning. These measures continue to change as appropriate to the times.

All Orange STEM staff are fully vaccinated and wear masks. We continue to strongly encourage that our students be vaccinated and wear masks. 

Please see Safety Measures or ask us for more information.

Note that all in-person programming is subject to current health guidelines and is therefore subject to change. Please confirm with the Centre or contact Orange STEM for up to date information.
