Montreal - Grandir Sans Frontières (GSF) invites the public to discover its activities as part of open days which will be held from September 3 to 14 from 5:30 p.m. (Tuesday to Friday) and 11 a.m. (Friday). The fall session will start on September 16, 2019.
Fall is on its way and many are looking for an alternative to traditional extracurricular activities. While some young people will opt for sport, others will prefer to express their creativity. In a warm atmosphere, overseen by a team of animators, participants will be able to immerse themselves, during the open days, in the digital world and deepen their knowledge thanks to a fun and educational approach. Among the various training courses offered are programming, robotics, video game creation, 3D printing and modeling, and video editing.
In order to constantly reduce the digital divide, workshops are free during the open houses and some courses will remain so throughout the year thanks to funding from the Government of Canada. During the new session, a wide range of activities are offered, including more than 20 small group trainings.
Following on from CréaTechLab, a free summer camp intended for 13 -17 year olds, a CréaTechLab session will be set up. This is a first for the charity. Young people will be able to carry out their personal projects by having free access to the technologies available at the Numérithèque, the digital co-creation space of Grandir Sans Frontières, located in Verdun (prior registration required).
