Tech Powered by girls is a hands-on program that explores themes at the intersection of architecture, design and making. In this program, girls / girl identifying kids will learn about architecture and installation design to reimagine, remix and recreate green spaces and concrete landscapes based on some of Toronto’s most interesting neighbourhoods.

Through observing a number of popular local and international landmarks, we’ll discuss how to make spaces more engaging through sculpture, digital fabrication, electronics and more. Participants will choose a space they’d like to transform (it can be anything from the side of an interesting building, to a parking lot, or even along the shoreline of Lake Ontario) and learn how to prototype and build their installation using Arduino robotics, laser cutting, 3D printing and woodworking.

What will they learn?

  • Understanding design of urban spaces
  • Human-centered design
  • Prototyping
  • 3D design for 3D printing
  • 2D design for laser cutting
  • Electronics
  • Arduino Robotics
  • Woodworking

Already have a robotics kit you want to reuse?
(Note: if your child has a kit from a previous program that was used in a project they do not want to disassemble to reuse the kit parts, it is required to purchase the $340 program cost including a new kit)

$280 / 7 week program (without a new kit)

If you decide you want a brand new kit, they can be purchased at $60 + HST after the first class, upon request and availability.
