The world's changing, fast. Software is becoming an important part of everything we do and the future will belong to those who not only can use technology but can help create it. Will our kids be part of that future?
We certainly hope so. And we're doing something about it.
We've partnered with Wellington City Council, Scots College, Enterprise Miramar Peninsula and Wellington Makerspace Trust to put on two new after school kids programming courses through the Creative and Performing Arts School:
Game Design Adventures course (recommended ages: 9-12 years)
Web Builder course (recommended ages: 13-16 years)
These courses are open to the public and scholarships are available to those with a Community Services Card thanks to support from Wellington City Council and private donors.
Spaces are limited so please register your child now via the links above.
If you have questions you can also get in touch via firstname.lastname@example.org
We're also helping support local teachers to get the skills they need to lead (or keep up) with the kids as they explore new technology. Our first teacher training event is being held on March 14th, from 9am-1pm at Scots College.
This introductory course is being provided at no cost to attending teachers and is suited to primary school teachers and will be led by Jess Weichler, media arts educator at the Wellington Makerspace Trust.
