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