Geeky activities in the July 2017 school holidays

School holidays roll around once again and it’s time for the usual list of activities that have made their way through my inbox. There’re some great activities on offer.

=> Thinkspace at the Museum of Applied Arts & Sciences is, as always, the winner in terms of range and quality. I really can’t recommend the Thinkspace courses highly enough. Nothing to speak of for anyone over the age of 13, sadly.

=> The Australian Museum has a smaller than usual range, with Scientist for a Day probably being the highlight.

=> AIE has the serious stuff for teenagers with introduction to animation and intro to game programming courses.

=> Codecamp is running its various coding workshops – in a range from beginner to experienced. Codecamp has is now running courses all over Sydney.

=> GirlCode is running a workshop for girls in Bondi and a couple of other places.

=> TechScience has courses in Manly on coding, robotics, electronics, 3D-printing and more good stuff.

=>  Fizzics Education programmes are running in Centennial Park, Sydney Olympic Park, and a range of vacation care venues.

=> On the North Shore, Professor Plums is running science and robotics workshops during the holidays. Doomsday science!

=> The Sydney Programming School has learn to code workshops running at the Mosman Art Gallery.

=> Code it Yourself has camps at a couple of places around Sydney (scroll down a lot to find the current ones – really poor website).

=> Microsoft XBox Academy has Minecraft workshops and more at its city store.

=> First Australia has a wide range of robotics camps at Macquarie University.


As always, if you know of anything I’ve missed anything feel free to let me know.
