A unique place in Ghent (Belgium) where children between 5 and 99 years of age work with a variety of ICT-tools. We invite children, parents and teachers, during and after school hours, to join one of our workshops. We organise inspiring team buildings for you and your colleagues. We brighten your event or seminar with creativity. We give advice concerning educational and innovative technology.... and even more!
We have various tools and technological solutions. For programming, the lab offers LEGO Education EV3 & WeDo, Beebot, Probot, Dwengo, Scratch, Differtent apps on iPad, Engino robotics, etc. We use Vernier sensors and Einstein LabMate for measuring. LEGO Education Story Starter and Stop-motion are used for storytelling. In addition to that, we use 3D-printing and Tinkercad, Kodu, Pixel Press Floors and laser cutting for modelling and design.
We are currently funded by the Agency for Entrepreneurship until the end of August 2015.
We mostly have "partners in tools" that provide us with hardware. Without these partners, the Fyxxilab wouldn't be able to have such a variety of tools.
We are constantly looking for new partnerships to extend the possibilities of the lab even further.
