Workshops

During the months of November, December, May and June,  Discovery Western offers workshops for elementary and secondary schools. The focus of these workshops is to increase the awareness and enjoyment of science and engineering while complimenting the Ontario Science and Technology Curriculum. Energetic DW instructors travel across Southwestern Ontario to provide workshops to children in Grades K-8.

Workshop Descriptions

For a full list of the workshops we offer please go to our Workshop Description page.

Location

Our instructors can either travel to your school or it can be hosted out of the Faculty of Engineering here at Western University. We prefer that the LEGO Robolab Workshop be run at the University due to software limitations.

  • 1 Workshop: $100/class
