Location: Christchurch - places available for term 3

Interactive hands-on creativity with electronics.
Learn how to interface computers with the real world.
Starting with the basics of electronics, and progressing to more complex projects, our CreativeHub sessions will help you control the physical world with sensors and actuators.

In light of the recent announcement by the government to increase funding to schools in the field of robotics and other ICT disciplines, I’d like to remind you about my tutoring availability.

My students won the Robocup National Championship in their categories last year.

There are still some spots available in TERM3 for tutoring in the subjects:

  • Robocup
  • Creative Technology

For further details, please see the attached course flyers from last year.  You will also see from my attached Resume, that I bring to my tutoring extensive experience in technology & product development, with an entrepreneurial flair.

If you’d like your students to exceed their current progress, please contact me to discuss course options & schedule for Terms 3&4. (last year's flyer is below

Kind regards,

Simon Dyer
