The Lab, a social and technology club for young people with autism, is inviting participants to join their new online tech club in North Lakes.
The Lab North Lakes will commence its Term 2 sessions soon and it will be at “The Space YMCA,” located on the corner of Lakefield Drive and Endeavour Boulevard. The organisation has not confirmed when the sessions will start but they are now registering participants through their website.
Term 1 sessions, dedicated to kids with autism aged 9-20 years, already started in February 2021. The program focused on IT mentoring in programming, gaming, robotics, and STEM. The goal is to help kids on the autism spectrum learn new social and technical skills and make new friends, wherever they live.
