CLASSROOM WORKSHOPS – LOWER MAINLAND
Geering Up is working hard to set up our STEM workshops to be delivered virtually in May & June 2021. Stay tuned for more information in January 2021. We are able to offer a very limited number of virtual workshops from January – April 2021 to select schools. If you are interested in these workshops, or if you have any questions, please reach out to us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Geering Up’s 1 to 1.5 hour workshops bring STEM into the classroom with interactive demonstrations, activities, and take-home projects led by our instructors. Teachers can sit back, relax, and watch their students engage in the fun of science and engineering. Our highly-trained instructors will adapt each workshop to suit the individual strengths and challenges of each class. All of our workshops are catered to the BC PLOs for grades K-12. Please contact us to discuss how we can customize our workshops for your group.
Each of our teams can teach up to three workshops a day, according to the following schedule.
This can be altered to fit your school’s bell schedule.
Note: We are unavailable for booking on Friday afternoons.
- Before Recess (9:00-10:00)
- After Recess (10:30-11:30)
- After Lunch (1:00 – 2:00)
