We are moving!

Since our creation in 2017, we have been sharing the premises of the Wagon (a great programming school for adults). The place is very central, but it doesn't allow us to give workshops during the week or on Saturdays. And it's not completely adapted for our crowd. So we are looking for a new space, completely dedicated to our activities. Where should we move? Your opinion counts! Please take a few minutes to fill in this short survey:

About

Techies Lab is an initiative launched in 2015 in Belgium, by a happy bunch of passionate coaches, for kids and teenagers to discover, experiment, learn and play with technology (robots, coding, gaming, 3D printing...). Through weekly workshops and tech camps, 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).

Carl Von Bonin

Carl Von Bonin

Being passionate about programming since the age of 8, Carl would love to study Software Engineering to work on building the software that powers our day to day lives. The IT world being so vast, he spends most of his time experimenting with different techniques in various computing areas to understand how they work, and regularly shares his newest projects on his YouTube channel “NamePointer”.

Tarig Bouazzati

Tarig Bouazzati

With a background in business engineering, a passion for technology and modern psychology, as well as an entrepreneur spirit, Tarig is excited to be involved in the Techies Lab Mission by sharing his knowledge with the ingenious kids that are ‘scratching’ tomorrow’s World.

Daniel Cortild

Daniel Cortild

Daniel discovered the joys of electronics and programming by simulating the blood system on board a rocket for the CanSat contest he won. He is as comfortable on a 100m track as before a differential equation and he loves to share his knowledge with the young and the wise.

Patrick Feeney

Patrick Feeney

Patrick is a French-American teacher of mathematics and physics who turned to educational technology in 2008 when he began designing puzzle games for the first versions of the iPhone and iPad. He has been involved in kids technology initiatives since he arrived in Brussels in 2012 notably with CoderDojo. His dream is to create a space for kids to tinker, code, build, make and imagine... a true imaginarium... right here in Brussels.

Hugo Herter

Hugo Herter

A professional developer, with a background in bio-informatics and artificial intelligence, Hugo builds web applications mainly using free & open source softwares. A volunteer at JSB (Jeunesses Scientifiques de Belgique), he likes teaching new technologies to both adults and teenagers. Some of his favourite tools include Python, Django, Processing, Linux and Arduino.

David Lefebvre

Former bank employee, Ling now takes care of her three children who are a full-time job! She is interested in computers because she has at heart the tech education of children. She also likes music, badminton, Japanese cuisine ... and hi-tech gadgets!

Louise Picot

Louise Picot

It seems that Louise's path to programming was destined by fate. She moved from Paris to Brussels to study painting but ended up burning her hands with some chemical products. Since she could not paint anymore, she decided to take some digital art and web design classes through which she discovered open-source graphical libraries helping artists to learn how to code. Louise is now completing a Master’s Degree in visual communication at ERG graphic design school in Brussels, creating digital art along the way.

Maïlys Renson

Maïlys Renson

After studying business engineering and working in international sales for several years, Maïlys decided to change direction and become a web developer. She now teaches coding and robotics to children and hopes to spark a new passion for technology in them.

Ana Sere

Ana Sere

To fulfill her interest in education, Ana chose to specialize in sociocultural activities and lifelong learning in addition to her masters in digital communications. Driven by her passion in gender equality, she worked in several non-profit organizations before diving into the tech world by becoming a manager for the coding school Le Wagon.

Margo Tinawi

Margo Tinawi

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 teaches programming to adults at Le Wagon and other organizations. In another life she was a lawyer in Canada... but that was before discovering Belgian fries!

Charlotte Vahsen

Charlotte Vahsen

Charlotte is a trained Historian and Cultural Manager. Naturally curious, she started exploring the links between culture and new technologies thanks to Museomix (a creative marathon in the museums). She has co-organized Museomix in Belgium for 3 years now. Building every day her own understanding of digital tools, it is with pleasure that she passes on her knowledge to others!
