The Epping Lab

In collaboration with The Lab

Who: Young people aged 10-18 who identify as being on the autism spectrum

When: Thursdays 4-6 pm, Terms 1-4 2021

Where: Whittlesea Tech School

The Lab is a technology club for young people aged 10 to 18 who identify as being on the autism spectrum and enjoy working with computers.

We provide a safe and supportive environment where participants can share their interests and work together. Participants are paired with mentors who have technical expertise in a mutual interest, such as programming, 3D modelling, digital design and gaming.

At each weekly two-hour session, mentors work with attendees to develop their social, personal and technology skills. These sessions take an unstructured approach so every session can be different. We want participants to undertake activities because it interests them, not because they have to. The Lab is designed to be a supportive place to visit, hang out and learn whilst having fun.

Check back soon for information on how to register.
