Our classes are offered in both English and French and are designed to fulfill the Science and Technology components of the Ontario School Curriculum. For each Grade we have a project that fulfils the curriculum guidelines. We discuss the Scientific principles throughout the class and because the children are working hands-on with the concept, they will never forget it. Each student builds their own project and all projects have moving parts. We use mainly reclaimed wood and other materials so we teach the students the value of making “something from nothing”.

You can choose many creative projects from windmills, paddles boats, tower cranes and robotic arms to treasure boxes, mechanical butterflies and motion machines. Our regular classes are 90 minutes long but we also offer 4, 6 , 8 and 10 week lunch and after school programs where the students build larger more complicated projects.

We come to you! We supply all the materials needed to build the project you have chosen and we come to your classroom so there are no buses to book. We bring our children-friendly, specially designed hexagon tables which incorporate a vice for holding pieces of wood while constructing projects. Working with our age appropriate designs, tools and tables students construct projects while developing an understanding of basic building principles, improving their co-ordination, and boosting confidence.

If you are interested in a presentation where we could show you samples of our work, booking classes with us, or just have a few questions, please contact us.
