In-School Programs

Bring Connections to your school!
Connections Engineering Outreach is proud to offer a full suite of
engineering design and robotics workshops for students in Kindergarten to Grade 12. 

Program Options

The Tech ‘n’ Tinker (TNT) Trailer is a 24′ cargo trailer that has been converted into a mobile classroom. The TNT Trailer is powered, equipped with WiFi and is climate controlled. The TNT Trailers travels to K-8 schools within a 1 hour radius around Kingston. When we visit with the TNT trailer we also bring our robotics kits and run simultaneous workshops inside the school.

Bring Connections into your high school classrooms to learn more about engineering as a career path; using basic coding to simplify lab reports; an introduction to AR/VR and much more! Our high school level workshops have been developed in order to give students a taste of engineering within a 75-minute class.
