Indigi-Cyber Camp for Kids
ASPI’s International Cyber Policy Centre warmly invites you to attend our inaugural Indigi-Cyber Camp for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander kids.
Indigi-Cyber Camp is an initiative that is being led by ASPI and local Indigenous business Yerra, in partnership with SecuriDay, to give opportunity for Indigenous youths to engage with I.T and Cyber in a fun and interesting way that will encourage future participation in I.T.
Indigi-Cyber Camp will incorporate games and lessons that will stimulate creativity and innovation in the participants and we hope that this will develop in such a way that Indigenous Australian culture will be underpinned throughout the program to make it educational and culturally appropriate.
Children from the ages of 9-13 years are encouraged to register.
