The workshops focuses on use of the following open source hardware and software technologies: Raspberry Pi, Sparki robot, Arduino hard- and software, Fedora Linux operating system, Libre Office Suite, some mathematical packages and a number of packages from the Fedora Electronic Lab platform.
Workshops can be held at a variety of locations, such as at aged care facilities, hospitals, schools and businesses. Workshops are currently available in Dutch and English.
  • On minicomputers Scratch, Ardublocks visual coding (software programming languages), and educational games are explored.

  • Soon to be implemented Sparki robots will used in the workshops, to give the coding an extra dimension and fun factor.
  • Workshops will soon be available in the use of high-end, open source, electronics engineering software packages; for designing and simulating of electronic circuit designs.
  • Soon workshops will be available in the use of Open Source mathematical software packages, such as Octave, Maxima and KAlgebra.
  • Stelt Technologies also offers workshops on a number of packages of the Libre Office Suite such as Writer (a word processor), Calc (a spreadshat program) and Impress (a presentation program). Soon workshops will also come available on Internet browsing and setting up and using of an online email account, as well as the use of social media websites.
