Moving Content Consumers to Content Creators
Young people are often able to use technology intuitively. But simply being able to use technology is no longer enough - we need kids be able to create with technology as well. Devika Learning transforms students from content consumers to content creators through interactive makerspaces and the facilitation of workshops on integrated science, technology, engineering, art and mathematics (iSTEAM).
Devika believes that young people learn best through hands-on learning and in an environment relevant to them. We’re dedicated to driving change by fostering a mindset that promotes adventure and discovery. Our program teaches how these skills can be applied broadly to technology and its importance to our daily life, family and community.
We partner with the world's leading technology providers to access the best tools for our earning workshops. We aim to increase students’ awareness of what technology is currently available for them, and how emerging tech could be used in the future.
All our facilitators are trained, qualified tech professionals and Working with Children (WWC) approved. Devika Learning is continuously learning and implementing tech-based initiatives, and we’re passionate about sharing this knowledge and experience with students.
Our workshops are designed to cover current iSTEAM job skills, which are expected to be in high-demand in coming years. We pay close attention to changes in technology and prospectus technologies, and shape our workshops to accommodate. Devika Learning is primarily extracurricular, however, we also build on the Department of Education Curriculum and assist in expanding the foundational skills students learn at school.

The careers of students today are unlikely to be limited to one industry. Combine this with the rapid expansion of technology, and it’s harder than ever before to predict and prepare for jobs in 5, 10, or 20 years time. This is why Devika Learning feels it’s important to focus on skills that are transferable, timeless, and relevant to our increasingly tech-based world.
How we can work together
Together we can provide your students with innovative content they need to be prepared for the future.
Our workshops are all-in-one: we provide the content, facilitators, and marketing material to create an engaging and hands-on learning experience. In addition, we support our communities by raising awareness of the steps local schools can take to incorporate tech more thoroughly into lesson plans.
Devika’s relationships with some of the world's best technology companies allows us to share the most tech-solutions with students. Our programs provide supplementary learning based off the curriculum. Students have their existing classroom skills reinforced in a manner that nurtures their future career prospects.
Let us help your students engage with tech skills and prepare them for the jobs of tomorrow.
The next step
We’re open to collaboration. Currently we offer a 10-week program that runs within school terms, and we can host them either at your child’s school (after school hours) or from our premises located in the University of Wollongong SMART Building.
Our 10-week program is $350 per student. This includes a Devika facilitator and a 90-minute workshop. Our facilitator to student ratio is 1:15, and each external workshop requires a minimum of eight students to run. For groups less than eight, enrol in our 10-week program at our UOW premises. Want to encourage tech collaboration at your school? We run school Hackathons.
