School Holiday Workshops

ECU’s School of Science: computing and security students develop and teach these day long workshops. Each workshop has different content.

Computing workshops focuses on the principles of coding using Python language (including PyBlockly) on our specifically designed website (Makerspace.ecu.edu.au/code). We like to use BBC Micro: bits hardware and their accessories such as sensors and motors to further enhance students’ knowledge.

Cyber Security workshops typically learn the fundamentals of Cyber Security, Cisco online courses or Linux Command Lines.

Cyber Challenges – Learn how to complete Cyber Challenges and Capture the Flags competitions. Practice cyber techniques. CyberStartGo, Saburra, PicoCTF, Glacies, Google CTF, and Over The Wire challenges.
