General Information

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.



Our website will be updated with registration information for the 2021 workshop season in early September!
