      Sustainable Tech & Coding - School Holiday Program for Kids

      Join us in Brisbane this Summer School Holidays to explore, tinker, and create technology to solve some of the world's most pressing issues around climate change, sustainability, and more.

      Conservation is very much a hot topic right now and is engaging young minds like never before. The question becomes, how can we use technology to help solve the problems of the world today and tomorrow? Sustainable computing is a rapidly growing research area using computer science and data analysis to find solutions for some of the world’s most urgent environmental and social problems. This is the theme for the next holiday break.

      Our Philosophy

      We pride ourselves on our ability to cater to students who are racing ahead, while supporting those who need more time to practise their skills. We aim to help students better understand the technological tools they have at their disposal, and how they can create rather than simply consume. Students are encouraged to adopt an experimental mindset, and think ‘What if?’ without giving into a fear of breaking something. We believe that people with unique interests learn to code for different reasons, and there are many ways to engage kids with tech in a way they find exciting and encouraging.
