Creator Labs

Play with Learning

At its core, Explorations believes that learning should be fun. To us, it comes as no surprise that so many studies have concluded that the best pathway for children to develop their curiousity, resiliency and emotional well-being is play. With this in mind, Explorations has partnered with CreatorEDU, a Montreal-based educational group, to provide our community with bi-weekly Creator Labs.

Join us every Monday and Thursday from 4 pm to 6 pm as we open the doors to our Learning Lab to allow children and teens to create their own learning paths and to discover the joys of overcoming challenges with access to all the Explorations resources and materials.

Each Creator Lab begins with an optional 30 minute workshop hosted by an Explorations Activity Leader. Children are then free to work with our resources to develop their own projects and activities. From Robotics to Youtubing, from Podcasting to Engineering, learners can choose whatever catches their interest or they can work on one of our prepared challenges.

Explorations Teaching Assistants are on site to help supervise, guide and encourage learners as they design their own learning plans and projects.
