IF learning about robotics, drones, Ozobots, 3D printing and coding sounds good to you, then come along to Toronto Library in Lake Macquarie from May 23 to 25.
The IDX Flint 2017 digital literacy program is now available for young Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders and local council cultural services manager Jacqui Hemsley invites people to take
part in the upcoming workshops.

“IDX Flint has been created to spark the interests, ideas and talents of young Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people,” Ms Hemsley said.  

“The free workshops at the library for facilitators and young Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders will enhance digital literacy related to innovation industries.

“At the end of the program participants will have input into what technologies they would like to see and use at Toronto Library into the future.”
