Words from the Director
5 February 2021

What a thrill to be back on site at the Tech School in 2021.

I trust that you are well rested and hope that you managed a few days away somewhere nice and warm, even if only local.

We kicked off the year with three virtual camps in January – two Camps ran specific for girls, and a third for young people with Autism and Asperger’s Syndrome in partnership with The Lab.

Next Wednesday our After School Clubs commence with The Lab Greensborough returning face to face, followed by our Maker Space in partnership with Nillumbik Council on 16 February. Registrations are open for both programs.

This week, as our 20 partner schools return, we have received many calls from excited teacher ambassadors looking forward to bringing students on site to solve real world problems for our Industry partners, use our brand new tech and partake in an immersive, hands on learning experience with our team – face to face!

We still have bookings available during Term 1 – ranging from a 1 Day Industry Tech Taster where students visit Melbourne Polytechnic’s health simulation suites for Aged Care, Disability and Pathology Laboratory and participate in a number of industry linked activities from drone flying to system engineering; to a 2 Day Introduction to Entrepreneurship Program where students work with a local entrepreneur to gain insight into the world of Entrepreneurship and the importance of entrepreneurial skills for future careers.

We look forward to working with you all in 2021.
