STEM School Holiday Workshops

To celebrate the 50th anniversary of the first humans landing on the Moon on July 20, 1969 as part of NASA’s Apollo 11 lunar mission, we have a jam-packed three days full of technology fun to ignite a passion for STEM in Australia’s next gen of explorers, engineers, coders, and beyond.

Workshop 1 – Build & Code a Mars Rover – Wednesday, 2nd October

Focus: Immersive Robotics
Ages: 8+
Description: Inspire yourself with the potential of Artificial Intelligence (AI). Create, construct and code a “Lunar Rover” using Sphero and mBots to bring them to life using basic programming skills.

Our expert trainers balance impressive technical ability with excellent communication skills. They are computer scientists, engineers, and industrial designers with prior teaching experience. All of our trainers have Working With Children checks, and a passion for inspiring young people to embrace STEM skills.

Student to teacher ratio

Our Philosophy

We pride ourselves on our ability to cater to students who are racing ahead, while supporting those who need more time to practise their skills. We aim to help students better understand the technological tools they have at their disposal, and how they can create rather than simply consume. Students are encouraged to adopt an experimental mindset, and think ‘What if?’ without giving into a fear of breaking something. We believe that people with unique interests learn to code for different reasons, and there are many ways to engage kids with tech in a way they find exciting and encouraging.

Prerequisites: Absolutely none!

Skill level: Beginner or intermediate

What else should I bring? Just bring a packed lunch and a water bottle! Morning & afternoon tea will be provided. Be ready to learn!
