#BLSTEAMCamps Brilliant Labs STEAM Camps Every summer since 2017, thousands and thousands of children from all walks of life have fun creating and innovating, building things, and problem-solving, with crafts and today’s technology at Brilliant Labs’ free STEAM camps across Atlantic Canada. Using design and art-making, computers, digital storytelling, kid-friendly coding, electronics, robotics, rocketry, virtual reality and 3D printing, children learn how to code and develop their digital skills right in their community! Many thanks to community and program partners, libraries, municipalities, youth-serving organizations and recreation centres for partnering with us to support children’s social, emotional and educational development.

Unfortunately, we were not even able to fit all of our STEAM Camp partners and locations in the description!
