Welcome to the
Techies Lab

Let's experiment with technology and build cool projects together!

About

The Techies Lab is a initiative launched in 2015 in Belgium, by a happy bunch of passionate volunteers, for kids and teenagers to discover, experiment, learn and play with technology (robots, coding, gaming, 3D printing...). Through one-week tech camps and one-day/afternoon discovery workshops, we foster our Techies' creativity!

Our objective is to instill the maker's spirit, deconstruct to better reconstruct and understand the inner working of things. Our workshops are fun (we laugh!), hands-on (we make things) and long-lived (we take back our projects home to further develop them).

A (cub) scout leader for many years, Anne is a passionate educator. An ambassador of Rails Girls, she loves helping newcomers to see the bright light in their eyes when the magic of coding gets unveiled! In 2014, she put on rails (and since then, drives) Le Wagon Brussels, the coding school for startups, creative people and entrepreneurs.

At the age of 6, Margo was writing textbooks for her brothers. Since, her passion for education is unweavering. When she's not busy creating workshops and running the Techies Lab's operations, Margo develops Kidzeum, a fun and educative app for museums. In another life she was a lawyer in Canada... but that was before discovering Belgian fries!

Some of his favourite tools include Python, Django, Processing, Linux and Arduino.

Alexandre Roba

Alexandre Roba

A software engineer by training and profession, Alexandre has dozens of innovative ideas that he likes to prototype, at work with the help of his geeky colleagues, at home with the help of his three ingenious kids! Loving father deeply concerned by education to tech for all, he's now willing to pass on his passion to other children and curious grown-ups!

Arthur Paquot

Arthur Paquot

Arthur has a MSc in Software Engineering. Pursuing his passion for education, he decided to study one more year at the university to become a Mathematics teacher. During his studies, he worked as a Teaching Assistant and gave several IT workshops in high schools. He's eager to share with the little ones his love for science and technology!

Jean-Christophe Bauduin

Jean-Christophe Bauduin

Our 16 years old whizz-kid, Jean-Christophe, developed a passion for computer science when he decided to repair his family's PC at the age of 10 :) Since then, a self–taught programmer, he has gained a solid expertise in open source technologies. His favorite playgrounds: Linux, C++, PHP, Laravel, Python, Ruby, Rails and Raspberry Pi!
