Holiday Workshops

Check out The Ian Potter Foundation Technology Learning Centre (IPTLC) located in Deakin and sign the kids up to a workshop during the October 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 3, 4 and 5 October:

Rockets (AM)

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

GameCraft (PM)

What goes into creating a computer game? Learn to make your own mini game using Scratch, then invent a wacky new way to control it!

Wednesday 4 October

3D Design (AM)

Design your own objects in three dimensions! After building a physical prototype, we'll explore the basics of computer aided design (CAD) to find out how to bring objects to life.

Enginuity (PM)

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

Thursday 5 October 

Robot Hack (AM)

Starting with simple inputs and outputs, you'll be prototyping a robot that can help with your chores.

Crash Test (PM)

Protect your precious cargo. Design and build a vehicle that’s going to get crumpled in a collision, but leave the occupants unscathed.
