The Lab


What is The Lab?
The Lab is a growing network of technology clubs around Australia for young people with autism who enjoy working with computers.
The Lab offers mentoring by technology professionals in areas such as programming, 3D, digital design and gaming.

About 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 +.

FCAC Lab sessions
FCAC Lab sessions are every Saturday from 11am -1:30pm during school terms. It is a fun, relaxed space to hang out and meet others with similar interests.
Lab mentors support the group with programming, 3D digital design and gaming. Lab mentors facilitate a supportive environment for participants to build confidence socialising with peers.
