Check out The Ian Potter Foundation Technology Learning Centre (IPTLC) located in Deakin and sign the kids up to a workshop during the July school holidays.

These hands-on workshops designed for young people aged between 10-15 years old will unleash the inner inventor, designer or maker.

Participants will get the opportunity to meet other like-minded people, make some cool stuff, get great advice on their projects, and find out how to further develop their ideas while having heaps of fun along the way!

Morning and afternoon workshops are available on 10, 11 and 12 July:

We’re going to build a fleet of crazy vehicles using air pressure, springs, gravity - and above all, your imagination - to power them.

3… 2… 1… Blast off! Experiment with different designs to see if you can launch your rocket into outer space.

Bots Programming (AM)

How to train your robot! In this workshop, you’ll learn about programming EV3 Lego robots to build assistive technologies.

Why do something the easy way when you could engineer a loopy, over-the-top, domino-effect machine to do it for you?

Wednesday 12 July

App Design (AM)

Ever had a bright idea for a new app? Explore what’s going on behind the screen and design the look and feel of your very own clickable app!
