Inspire your students with a STEAM workshop!

Our classroom workshops are available again for May and June 2024! Workshops will be led by two Geering Up instructors and consist of exciting, hands-on activities that promote problem-solving and curiosity in STEAM fields. Students of all levels can participate and walk away from the workshop with the tools and knowledge they need to further explore programming, science, and engineering.

“[The instructors] were amazing in guiding us step by step through the project on Scratch. Everyone came away with a lot more confidence in the program and expertise in making a Sprite do something that we couldn’t have made it do before the workshop.”


BC Curriculum Ties: All of our workshops meet multiple components of the Applied Design, Skills and Technologies and Science Curriculum for Gr. K-12.  More fun and exciting workshops will be available in January to June!

In-person workshop fees vary depending on how many workshops you choose to sign up for. Please see above for details. To help offset the cost of vehicle rentals and travel time, travel fees apply to all schools outside of Vancouver and range from $20 - $40. We recognize that some schools may be experiencing additional financial difficulties during this time. Should you want to participate but find that cost is a barrier, please don’t hesitate to contact us at

Our workshops are designed for single classes of up to 30 students. Each of our teams can teach up to three workshops per day, according to the following schedule. We are happy to accommodate the nuances of your school's bell schedule.
Workshop 1: 9:00 AM - 10:15 AM
Workshop 2: 10:30 AM - 12:00 PM
Workshop 3: 1:00 PM - 2:30 PM

We are very excited to join your classroom for our in-person workshops! Geering Up instructors will be able to join your classroom for an entire session to guide the class through STEAM workshop(s) of your choice. Instructors will arrive a few minutes before the workshop to set up as well as go over any considerations for your class. Workshops typically are 1-1.5 hours in length and consist of a quick introduction to a STEAM topic and hands-on, inquiry based activities. See the elementary and high school page for more details on specific workshops. Please ensure that there is a way for our instructors to project slides and, for tech based workshops, your students may need a computer/device with internet connection. If you have any questions, do not hesitate to email us

This year, we are introducing a two-part series based off of our classic Super Scratch Coding workshop. In this Super Series, students will first learn the basics of block coding by building their own game on Scratch! They will learn to apply concepts of problem decomposition to build strong coding skills. In the second installment, students will build on their skills from the first workshop. They will have the opportunity to explore and use different AI softwares, and build their own machine that recognizes body poses! We will also discuss the applications and importance of AI in different engineering fields.

Our Super Series has a discounted price for workshops of $175 per workshop, for a total of $350 for both workshops. A more detailed price breakdown is available on your invoice. *Travel fees do apply*

1. Why should I bring this into my classroom?

70% of tomorrow's jobs will require STEAM skills, but less than half of high school students graduate with the prerequisite STEAM courses (Skills Competencies Canada). BC's new ADST curriculum heavily integrates computer science and applied science skills to help address that gap. Geering Up workshops aim to help educators satisfy BC's new ADST curriculum by providing their students the opportunity to investigate STEAM in fun, innovative, and hands-on experiments and projects. Our workshops allow students to build future skills, connect with current university undergraduate students, and gain tools, knowledge, and inspiration to explore a future in STEAM!

2. Will I need to download any software prior to the workshop to participate?

No! Workshops will not require the downloading of any apps or software. All of the software we use in our workshops are web-based applications that you and your students can access through the internet!

3. What materials will my class need to participate?

For our in-person workshops materials may include computer or tablet with an internet connection. All other materials will be provided by the Geering Up team. A teacher letter with information about the workshop content and a list of any additional materials needed will be provided in advance of your scheduled workshop.

4. What do I need to do to set up for the workshop?

Please keep an eye out for a teacher letter with information about the workshop content and a list of any additional materials needed. This will be provided after registration, and in advance of your scheduled workshop.
