Chromeworks is a teacher-led initiative aimed at showing kids how to stop being passive consumers of technology and start their journey towards becoming active creators. Based in Ottawa, Canada, we offer in-school and online tutorials in game design, animation, digital storytelling, film making, stop motion and much more. Lead teacher Andrew Tomec is a veteran technology educator who’s taught digital creation skills to thousands of children.
Mr. T’s weekly live stream, The Chromeworks Club, airs Saturdays at 10am Eastern, and offers a fun environment where kids can show off their projects and learn new coding skills.
