Regional Queensland, we’re coming!
The Queensland Government is presenting the Digital Skills for all Queenslanders Roadshow. People in regional towns will have the opportunity to interact with digital technologies that they might not normally have the opportunity to see – including robots, drones and virtual reality. Presenters and facilitators will talk with people directly in their own communities about how technology can work best for them and what it means in their lives.
Coding Kids will be running workshops for:
- Year 2-4 students (create digital artwork) (iPads provided for workshops)
- Year 5-6 students (develop artistic apps) (iPads provided for workshops)
- Teachers, librarians and educators (Let’s start from Scratch and learn to code) (Bring your own laptops)
Dates for each regional centre
- Rockhampton – Wednesday 17 May
- Cairns – Wednesday 31 May
- Longreach – Wednesday 7 June
- Mt Isa – Thursday 15 June
- Bundaberg – Tuesday 20 June
