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

Monday 10th April 

  • Strange Devices (AM)

Explore the silly side of inventing in this half-day workshop focused on being creative and coming up with innovations that are almost useless, but not quite.

  • 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!

Tuesday 11th April

  • Girls Make: 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! Please note that this workshop covers identical content and activities to previous iterations of 3D Design, but delivered in a female-only, rather than co-educational, environment.

  • 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…

Wednesday 12th April

  • 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!

  • 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?
