This Fall, The Bentway is excited to be teaming up with our neighbours at Kids Coding to offer a series of family-friendly workshops, inviting kids to learn the principles of science, engineering, technology, and the arts through creative play. Hosted in The Bentway Studio space, these workshops will feature a different theme and a ‘build your own’ activity each week, from rockets to robots.
Please note that parents and/or guardians must accompany children under the age of 16 at all times. Workshop materials may include the use of scissors, hot glue guns, and staples.
