It’s great to be back ‘Making’ in 2015. We have just concluded a series of Invent to Learn workshops around Victoria with Gary Stager. We held workshops at Dallas Brooks Primary School, Camberwell South Primary School, Weeroona College, Bendigo and Library at the Dock in their community maker space.

We are working towards a Mini Maker Faire in Childrens’ Week at the end of October that will be open to all Victorian families. We will also be holding an event in November where students can come together and share their inventions.
A series of student-led maker events will be held during term 2 & 3. Our first two events will be held in Geelong and Bendigo before the end of term 2 and a template will be developed for networks of schools who wish to organise their own student-led maker event.
We will hold a webinar on Thursday 16th April to launch this project and call for interested people to form a working party.
