2019 Coding & STEM Workshops

We have recently received funding to run the 2019 Coding & STEM 4 Schools programs. We are planning to run a variety of professional learning programs this year, including a weekly after-school program over 8 weeks and an Artificial Intelligence and Virtual Reality workshop.

We will update this webpage with more detail when these programs are confirmed but we will send out all details about the programs through our mailing list first, which you can register for using this form.


If you have any enquiries, please contact Daniel Hickmott.
