Looking for educational activities for your children to do during the school holidays or weekends? Come along to one of our fun STEAM workshops. STEAM is an acronym for Science, Technology, Engineering Arts and Mathematics.
The sessions are informal, hands-on learning. We encourage students to actively participate and give them the opportunity to extend their knowledge in the areas of interest. We have engaging and open discussions on STEM concepts and use various media to reinforce learning. We design opportunities for students to “think with their hands” to construct meaning and understanding.
Our themed workshops are proudly supported by Advance Queensland
