Coding, Robotics, and STEM Programs for Schools
Prior to covid Envision Robotics worked with public and private schools across the GTA to conduct in-person coding, robotics, and 3D printing programs. Our lunchtime and in-classroom programs reached over 300 students per week. We continue to support in-person programs where guidelines allow.
Program Licensing & Online Learning Portal
Earlier this year we launched our online portal and made our programs licensable for delivery by teachers. Our programs are designed to enable teachers to begin teaching coding quickly, without previous experience, and with the confidence they need to deliver comfortably and effectively. It’s a win all-around for students, teachers, and schools.

Helping Teachers Teach Coding!
We’ve vastly reduced the learning curve for teachers to teach coding.
For the majority of schools and teachers the introduction of coding, robotics, and digital STEM technologies is very new. The learning curve can be steep requiring many hours of research, lesson preparation, set-up and more. Multiple this effort by the number of teachers at your school and the time investment is significant.
With the introduction of our online portal and purposely-designed program lessons, teachers can begin teaching coding quickly and with the confidence needed to deliver effectively.
Our programs coder Grade 1 – 8 and include: Scratch, Makecode, Micro:bit Microcontrollers, Flowlab, Bloxels, Pixel Art & Animation, 3D Design/3D Printing, Mobile App Design and more. We are also a reseller of the BBC Micro:bit Microcontrollers.
