Vision 2017 Coding and Robotics Grant recipients announced
Congratulations to the 33 councils awarded up to $10,000 each in funding to run coding and robotics programs through their libraries and Indigenous Knowledge Centres, totalling more than $300,000 in funding.
Minister for Innovation, Science and the Digital Economy Leeanne Enoch announced the successful recipients at Parliament House on Thursday 26 May.
It was important for SLQ to support these 33 Councils and acknowledge their work to enhance community awareness of libraries’ roles, skills and services, and support the development of innovative public programs.
The coding and robotics funding supports the government’s broad agenda for digital transformation in Queensland.
State Librarian Sonia Cooper has urged Queenslanders to check their local library service or Indigenous Knowledge Centre and see if there are any courses available and to get on board with the many activities on offer.
