DE's Traveling Lab Coat workshops are curriculum tied, hands-on science & tech workshops for your classroom, and the best part is we don't require parent volunteers!

Makey Makey

The Makey Makey is an invention kit designed to connect everyday objects to computer keys. Using a circuit board, a USB cable, and alligator clips you can bring your computer to life! This workshop teaches the basics behind how the Makey Makey works and then allows your imagination to run free to create your own inventions to teach various learning outcomes in your classroom or STEM clubs.

Ozobot

The tiny robot that blends physical and digital worlds. Using colours and lines you program your robot, screen-free, to follow directions. Using OzoBlockly you can learn to block code your robot to follow a multitude of commands. This robot allows teachers to integrate the Arts into STEM learning in the classroom.

The micro:bit

The BBC micro:bit is a pocket-sized computer that introduces you to how software and hardware work together. Using buttons, sensors, a LED light display, and many inputs and output features you will learn how to code it and to interact with it physically. This little computer makes a great compass or step-counter and that is just the tip of the iceberg!

Little Bits

Little Bits are an electronic prototyping platform to learn more about electronics and circuits. Learn how to use Little Bits to expand on your circuit’s lessons. These magnetic blocks that snap together are also a great tool to build and prototype various gears and movements.  LittleBits will engage your students and increase their technology literacy, critical thinking, creative confidence, and build teamwork skills.

Team Building Activities

Bring your colleagues and join us for a fun, hands-on, and engaging workshop that builds confidence in STEM, expands your activity bank and helps builds a stronger team. It is your turn to do all the fun activities your students experience!
