We are an educational organisation that is guided by belief that people learn best through experience.


The JEFA invasion is the core of what we do. An invasion is typically a 1-4 day in-school event that ‘invades’ each Grade with exciting, challenging and interactive workshops. We have a large range of workshop topics that make our programmes interdisciplinary, but from the start we have focused on STEAM subjects and robotics and coding. Our invasions usually become an annual event that is anticipated by both teachers and learners!


Brain Builders is a division of JEFA dedicated to teaching life skills, problem solving, critical thinking and personal development. Brain Builder workshops use activities such as Poi, Juggling, Tangrams and Quatro chess to concentrate and stimulate minds, these workshops generally go hand-in-hand with the STEAM workshops; we aim to develop learners holistically.


JEFA offers customised courses and programs on any topic or theme for any age group!

These include but are not limited to:

Team building

Teacher training workshops

Serious Play® for teachers & corporates

Special events & parties

Robotics &


Grades 4-12

Our robotics workshops provide learners with a practical introduction to the foundational principles of robotics and coding. Using the LEGO robotics systems, the workshops incorporate inputs and outputs and demonstrate how they allow a robotic system to interact with the world around it.

Learners build and program the robots with a drag-and-drop interface from a computer or iPad. We offer various themes and projects that guide learners with instructions on how to build and program models.
