In August 2018, the Social Activities working group was re-named the Social & Learning Activities working group with the aim to develop social and learning activities for young people.
These activities have included:
- Robotics & Programming
- FIRST LEGO League Team
Since July 2018, D’FAT has been a validated public Learning Destination for Children’s University (CU) Tasmania.
A Learning Destination is a place where CU participating children and young people (7 to 14 year olds) can ‘travel’ to with their Passports to Learning to participate in learning activities and experiences.
Passports to Learning are provided by participating schools in CU to the children. These passports are used by the children to record the attended activity. Once the children have reached the required number of activity hours, they will graduate from CU. Certificates are presented at graduation ceremonies held once a year at a University of Tasmania campus.
D’FAT conducts an events survey with young people to evaluate current activities and identify further activities to be conducted by D’FAT.
