Learn STEM - Science, Technology, Engineering & Mathematics

STEM-Learn invites boys and girls (aged 7 years and up), teenagers and adults to engage with the science and technology behind our modern day devices.

For as little as $7 per class, you and your child can enjoy a range of interactive and hands-on activities, including making a push-button switch (which you can decorate, colour and may take home) then wiring it to a Raspberry Pi computer board computer running Scratch, Minecraft Pi, Python, Sonic Pi (Music Synthesis) and more.

Held in a fun, safe and supportive atmosphere, this unique workshop series is facilitated by Oscar Naval, founder of STEM-Learn. It will be held in a small group, per session (children under 10 years will require parental supervision).

Children love to play the latest computer games and mobile phone apps but Oscar hopes this fascinating series of workshops will help children gain an appreciation of modern technology and how it works For example, instead of children limiting themselves to just playing Minecraft, they can change the Minecraft virtual world through simple coding and programming skills.

Oscar will also introduce children to the basic concepts behind a range of devices that we use every day. These workshops will also help improve your child's STEM skills which are fundamental for young people to thrive in the future.
