The Bachelor of Transdisciplinary Innovation Play Day: Our most popular class! The Expo is a taster activity for the Tinker Kits where students can experiment and play with different technologies. Students rotate through different technology stations in groups, completing activities and reflecting on what they experienced. This activity encourages group work, curiosity and play, while exposing students to technologies like simple circuitry, drag and drop code, robotics and virtual reality.

We have run this session for Bachelor of Technology and Innovation, Bachelor of Creative Intelligence students, Digital literacies FASS students and academic staff events.
