During the Sping school holidays, CoderKidz, a not for profit organisation, is presenting a series of interactive workshops at Brisbane Square Library and Chermside Library fro children aged 8 to 17.

This unique series of workshops for boys and girls are centred on interesting and engaging topics, such as software and web development, electronics, robotics and 3D design.

Each workshop is held in a fun and encouraging atmosphere and children will be given the opportunity to engage with a variety of programming concepts and languages; from developing skills to create a website, to programming a robot invention and gaining a better understanding of 3D Design and Printing.

The workshops are hosted by friendly CoderKidz mentors, who all have significant experience in fields relevant to the courses being delivered, as well as experience in mentoring children and teenagers in similar environments.

Choose from three different workshops:
