Balmacewen 'Kids Con 21st August 2014'
Balmacewen hosted it's first 'Kids Con' to some of our contributing schools on the 21st August. We had students from Wakari, Kaikorai, George Street, Balaclava and Maori Hill Primary Schools in attendance.
'Kids Con' is a conference where Balmacewen Students host and teach Year 6 visiting students in small workshops and have them learning and using some of the latest IT gear and programmes. The Kids con students have been working hard alongside our IT/Kids Con teacher Miss Phillipa Dick over last term and this term to gain knowledge and skills to run the day of activities. The Balmac students also gained a lot of their knowledge from Otago University and Polytechnic IT specialists in a similar set up for them to learn their skills earlier in the year.
It was fantastic to see our Balmacewen students teaching, sharing and inspiring the visiting students wiht their skills in this conference. Students who took part got to experience - Robot programming, HTML Code writing, 3D Design, 3D Prinitng, Computer Animation, Computer Game creation and Video Creation in our Green Room Studio.
Thanks to all of our contributing schools who had students attend, we hope they enjoyed their day.
