Words from the Director
15 February 2021

This fortnight we welcomed students from Parade College to deliver virtual tech sessions in CAD and coding. Teachers can continue to book virtual programs for a minimum of three hours, which can be split into multiple sessions to fit within your timetable.

We were thrilled to welcome back students to our after schools club The Lab Greensborough, and our Maker Space – Maker Lab run in partnership with Nillumbik Council kicks off in one week time with an amazing program lined up for kids aged 10-18.

This Term we have spaces free for our brand new two day Autocrops Design Challenge in partnership with Farmwall, where students work to automate parts of a mini aquaponics farm that grows in-home fresh vegetables right from your own kitchen!

Our gallery space is all set up featuring a bee hive, local honey and bees wax showcasing our brand new Bees with Backpacks program developed in partnership with CSIRO. This is part an in-school program with an additional day at the Tech School for students to create prototypes of smart bee hives and culminates in Term 4 with a State Wide Tech School Pitch event where students have opportunity to ‘pitch-off’ against other students from Tech Schools across Victoria!

Get in touch if you would like to discuss opportunities for your school
