Techies Lab is an initiative that was launched in 2015 in Brussels in order to give children and teenagers the opportunity to discover, experiment, learn and have fun with new technologies.

During the discovery days and the workshops, kids aged 8 to 17 learn programming, robotics, 3D modeling and printing, video games and so on.

The goal is to pass on the joy of hacking, deconstruct to better rebuild and understand what’s going on behind the scenes.

An alternative to other extra-curricular activities, while offering complementarity to school. The goal is to open the doors of creativity!

Partnerships are organized with other entreprises located in Wallonia in order to give them the keys to digital wherever in Belgium.

Techies Lab workshops are fun (we laugh!), practical (we create ourselves!) and recyclable (we bring our projects home to pamper them and continue developing them). They are given in French and English by our passionate team and adapted according to the age of the child.
