Tap & Tinker

What Is A Tap & Tinker?

Our Tap & Tinker events are free events that last from 3 or 6 hours and aim to inspire, teach and problem-solve around a STEAM topic of your choosing (or let us choose for you!). Open to all girls, young women and young non-binary people, from Years 3-12.

During these sessions, Stemettes will help you create: a basic app (Years 3 & 6), a chatbot (Years 7-9), a 3D prototype (Years 7-9) or a website (Years 7-12).

For sponsored Tap & Tinker sessions, students in attendance will encounter role models from our partners, and also hear about the careers of the role models in attendance.
