Copy of In-Person Workshops & Classes for Spring 2023
"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.
Orange STEM Education has safety protocols in place for all in-person learning, and these measures continue to change as appropriate. All Orange STEM staff are vaccinated, and they are encouraged to wear masks. We continue to encourage that our students be vaccinated and wear masks. Please see Safety Measures or ask us for more information.
