AWS Student Cloud Technology Day

InTEACT Logo Square

Students are our future builders!  Amazon is committed to inspiring the next generation of technology leaders, and we’re inviting Year 9 and Year 10 students to take part in the AWS Student Cloud Technology Day for a day of innovation and skill building.

Join us as we demystify the concept of artificial intelligence through interactive learning activities.  Examine the principles of cloud computing, acquire voice-design skills, and gain practical experience working on a voice-enabled solution.

Teachers accompanying students to the workshop will have an opportunity join AWS for lunch to learn about the AWS Educate program, and its many classroom and career-focused applications.

The AWS Student Cloud Technology Day for high school students will run on Tuesday, 11 September 2018, from 9:00am to 2:30pm, at the National Convention Centre in Canberra. As we wish to give all schools a chance to participate, seats are available on a first-come, first-served basis.
