Frequently Asked Questions

Workshop kits

Are your products eco-friendly?

Our products are designed and built to be durable and reusable. Each kit has an almost infinite lifespan and we encourage you to explore the limits of our kits!

Can we buy a kit without micro:bit?

Absolutely! We also offer a discount on our workshop kits that use micro:bit if you already have one. Let us know when you buy if you already have Micro:bit. Make sure you have one for each Wally, Rosy and Ziggy kit. The Tinka, Gonzo and Rolax kits do not require a micro:bit.


Who leads the workshops?

Our animators ensure that the workshop runs smoothly, either online or in person. We can also train you to deliver the workshop yourself! Whichever formula suits your needs, let us know!

Who are the workshops for?

We make sure that our workshops are accessible to everyone, regardless of their level of digital skills. Our workshops are also adapted for students from 7 to 17 years old with a gifted profile, in special education and even more, adults are often adept. We collaborate with young people from these communities during the development of the pedagogical experience in this same vision of accessibility and inclusiveness!
