TELSTRA TECH KIDS

The Telstra Tech Kids' zone is for all the children out there, who are more than likely more tech-savvy than their parents and grandparents. My grandson, who is fast approaching five, can sure teach me a thing or two when it comes to technology and I-Pads. The Telstra Tech zone is a fun, innovative and interactive zone, that will provide children with the opportunity to learn about the tech-driven world that we live in. This zone is designed to introduce coding, augmented reality (ok, I'm lost), robotics and drones to the little ones!
