We are a not for profit initiative...
As educators, our job is to facilitate and encourage a supportive space that cultivates exploration through building, making and innovating. We believe in adopting a beginner's mindset and we believe that our job is to inquire with the learner, to model curiosity, to model experimentation and to be as interested about what is happening as the learner.
We bring more than 30 years of experience working with groups at all stages of their learning; primary, secondary, tertiary, further education, and community education. From early school leavers and young offenders to teachers at all levels with decades of experience. Our goal remains the same: to invite learners to engage with technology and with their own creativity, to encourage them to delve into and develop their innate curiosity in learning new skills.
