About The Lab Sessions

The Lab’s approach is unstructured and does not have expectations of specific education or technology outcomes. The Lab is a tech and games based social experience for young people aged 10-16 +.

The Lab mentors support the group with programming, 3D digital design and gaming. The Lab mentors facilitate a supportive environment for participants to build confidence socialising with peers.
