Our mission is to provide an engaging platform for the learning of relevant and transferable skills for future career paths.
We do this by creating local community interactive makerspaces as our means of forming the most trusted delivery channel of leading and relevant content; mainly in the areas of integrated science, technology, engineering, art and mathematics (iSTEAM).
We believe that youth can flourish with hands-on learning in an environment that is relevant to them. We are dedicated to driving transformable change by fostering a mindset that promotes adventure and discovery. Through this we teach how the skills learned can be applied to technology and its importance and impact on our daily life, our family and our community.
In doing so, we have partnered with the world’s best and well-known providers to access the best technology within our learning workshops and help increase the awareness of what is currently available and the future implementation of emerging technology.
Our facilitators are trained and qualified technology professionals. We are continuously learning and implementing technology initiatives and are passionate about sharing this knowledge and experience with students. All our facilitators are Working with Children (WWC) approved.
Our workshops are designed to cover current iSTEAM job skills, with the future in mind. We do this by closely aligning our workshop content with current changes in technology and prospectus technologies. Our primary focus is extracurricular activities and understandings, however we also supplement a student’s study of the Department of Education Curriculum and assist in building on their foundation skills which they learn at school. We have also provided an appendix to this booklet to further detail the workshops, how they apply to the curriculum and extracurricular activities.
With technology changing exponentially, we feel career paths of the future do not need to be limited to one industry. Pair this with rapidly changing technology in the workplace, and it is harder than ever to prepare for what work you may have in 5, 10, or 20 years’ time. Therefore, we feel it is important for us to focus on skills that are transferable, skills that are changeless, and skills which are relevant to how we perceive the future is shaping ongoing.
How we can work together
Together we can provide your students with innovative content to have your school lead the way in preparing for future career paths.
We provide workshop content, facilitators, and marketing material to provide an engaging platform for the learning of relevant and transferable skills for future career paths. In addition, we support your community by raising awareness of the steps your school is taking to prepare your students for the future.
Our relationships with the world’s best and well known providers allow you as a school provide their technology and solutions to your students.
We cater for the supplementary learning of the curriculum with your students and reinforce what they are currently learning in the classroom, and furthermore, nurture their career path into future jobs.
Working together, we can provide better student engagement and build your reputation as a leader in education for the future.
There are many different ways for us to collaborate, we currently offer a 10-week program that works within the school terms, and we can either conduct them at the school after school hours or you can send the students to our premise to conduct the workshops at the Devika Space in Wollongong CBD.
The 10-week program is currently $350 per student, which covers a Devika facilitator coming to the premise and running a 90-minute workshop from end of school time. Our facilitator to student ratio is 1:15, and we would need a minimum of 8 students for us to run the workshops at your premise. If the numbers are lower, we then offer the 10-week program at our Devika Space.
We do have a funding program that allows for changes in circumstances to the stand package we provide above.
Our collaboration not only includes workshops, but we also offer complimentary (free) services, such as:
- Student motivational presentations/talks
- Parent information nights
- Trial workshop for students
- Scholarships programs
