The Creche and Kindergarten Association Limited 257 Gympie Road, Kedron, QLD 4031

In this thought-provoking workshop, you will learn how to engage children in technical learning through design, production, investigation, and analysis and to foster children’s technical competence. We will also build on our own appreciation of the relevance of technology education for children’s understanding of the world and their creative spirit.


Through partaking in hands-on, interactive activities, we will explore technical inventions of the past, optimise present-day technology, and design sustainable solutions for the future! By the end of this workshop, you will feel prepared to help children identify needs and design technical solutions. You will have also acquired a variety of technology education approaches you can use in your setting.
