After School Programs: Prototyping, Coding & Inventing.

Welcome to our Free In-person or Virtual Programs.

Learning is fun, especially when you’re taking your ideas from concept to prototype! The Brilliant Labs After School Programs offer youth, grades 3-8, the opportunity to code, design and explore tools that can help transform our world.

Brilliant Labs works with educators and community organizations throughout Atlantic Canada to bring hands-on learning to youth. If you have an idea for our virtual learning programs or would like to explore hosting an after school program in your community, let’s connect!
