Swinburne University of Technology will host a FREE Computer Science for High Schools (CH4HS) program to run over two consecutive days. These workshops are for practicing IT teachers who would like to develop their IT skills. 

The two-day program will consist of a guided tutorial through some simple graphical programming using the Swingame engine, resulting in a playable game. You will have opportunities to interact with each other, build on your networks and develop skills.
