Perhaps you are interested in the way in which our brain influences our body. In this workshop, we will use the movie Inside Out to introduce us to some key areas of neuroscience and psychology. As we delve deep into the mysterious human brain, we will participate in a replica psychological experiment, look at some famous psychological studies, learn more about ourselves and understand how we are ‘fearfully and wonderfully’ made. Presenter: Emma SolomonProgramming: Learning to Decode Python Curious about the possibilities of your computer? This Nexgen Codecamp workshop will introduce the world of programming with a specific focus on the modern programming language: Python. During our time together, you will build a game with Pygame and using Microsoft VS Code IDE, you will take your coding knowledge to the next level. Not only will you develop and extend your thinking capabilities but you will have a lot of fun! This workshop is for beginners and experts alike. No experience for programming needed.

Presenter: UNSW RoboticsIn Defence of Women: What Every Girl Needs to Know Have you wondered what you might do if you were attacked? Felt intimidated by a group of guys? Perhaps found yourself in trouble or felt unsafe? Here is a workshop with a difference. This self-defence workshop is for girls only. It will teach you what to do when danger comes knocking and even better, how to avoid being in danger to begin with. Black- belt instructors will teach you essential skills so that you can feel more confident in every situation. Presenter: Carmelina Read and Goju Kai Karate SchoolSpeedway Science America has their Pinewood Derby, but Australia has its very own ‘Speed Racers’. Build a simple car from wood, wheels and axles then race it down a track to beat the other teams. Explore what changes can be made to your speed racer to make it go even faster. The workshop investigates aerodynamics, drag, friction, inertia and much more! Presenter: Jacob Strickling78 9The Philosophy of Science Lots of things in life seem pretty obvious. Gravity makes things fall down. Water is wet. Facts are facts. The scientific method is an excellent tool for figuring lots of these things out. But it can’t tell us everything about everything. We will be thinking about the strengths and weakness of science in helping us explore and understand our world. We will consider if scientific truth is really the deepest truth, or if there is something else that we need to be building our understanding on. There will be lots of thinking about thinking and asking *why* as we consider our basis for truth and understanding in this world. Presenter: Jason MarriotDigital Music Feeling creative and want to delve into the world of digitised music? Paul Iannuzzelli is top- notch when it comes to guiding students in the generation of their own compositions. He can help you effectively use your technology in writing melodies, producing scores, learning effects, syncing music with visuals and producing arrangements. Presenter: Paul IannuzzelliPhilosophy: A Crash Course in Thinking about Thinking Are you a deep thinker? Are you the kind of person who likes to see things ‘beneath the surface’? If so, this workshop will be to your liking. The course will examine Socratic Method, mathematical logic, the nexus of perception and reasoning and New Atheism. It will do this through a Christian lens. We will engage with culture and find that philosophy is essentially important for creating the conditions where young people can effectively critique their world and become the change makers of society. Presenter: Michael Street!"#$%&1 23 4 5AFTERNOON WORKSHOPSPaint Power Joan Miro once said, “I start from something considered dead and arrive at a world. And when I put a title on it, it becomes even more alive.” What do you see in the world around you? What can you cultivate with your imagination? Using stencilling, letters, numbers and paint, this workshop will allow you to create your own artwork. As you do, you will be guided in the way you might combine various elements to produce your creative vision. The sky’s the limit! Presenter: Julia WiltshireCreative Writing Stories are powerful. Stories can be dangerous. Stories can be weapons. Stories allow us to dream up and bring an entirely new world into reality. Ultimately, stories can allow us to understand the world and ourselves in a deeper and richer way. In this workshop, we will explore the way that stories have shaped our lives and our histories. We will listen to stories being told. We will share stories with each other and we will make time to write our own. We will draw on our experiences to create known and unknown worlds as we explore how we can use characters, settings, themes, motifs and plot to be creative. Whether you are absolutely bursting with tales that you want to share or whether you tremble at the thought of sharing your writing, this session will guide and equip you so that you leave with an understanding of what it means to write a powerful and moving story. Be ready to play, dance and wrestle with the written word.
