Coding for Brisbane Kids

In 2016, the Queensland Government reviewed the Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) education in Brisbane state schools. One of the main findings of the review confirms a need for more research in the emerging areas of engineering and computer programming in schools.

The Department of Education launched #codingcounts and have introduced robotics in schools and the use of digital technologies to answer questions and real world problems.
