Junior University Workshops

Know an inquisitive child who is always asking how and why?

The ANU College of Engineering and Computer Science is hosting a series of free workshops designed for primary school students in years 3-6 and their parents and carers. These workshops will introduce participants to exciting concepts and provide many opportunities to have their questions answered.

Workshops will be held on the first Wednesday of every second month, starting in May 2019. Each workshop will explore a different theme, ranging from engineering and coding to robotics. Students will learn through play and parents and carers might even pick up some new skills along the way. 

Light snacks and refreshments will be provided, so just turn up and enjoy the hands-on fun.  

Spaces are limited, so register now.
