Here’s how our programs can support your child’s education and personal growth.

The Intersection of Learning & Technology

At The PC Hub, we believe that learning should be engaging, practical and fun. Our computer-building sessions are designed to foster a deep understanding of technology while also meeting educational standards.

Here’s a breakdown of how our programs align with the Australian Curriculum:

Digital Technologies (F-10)

Digital Systems and Information Systems: Students learn about the hardware components of digital systems and how they interact. This directly aligns with the curriculum’s focus on understanding digital systems and data representation.

Creating Digital Solutions: Our sessions encourage students to design and create digital solutions. This involves planning, developing, and evaluating computer-based projects, covering essential curriculum aspects like problem-solving and project management.

Science (F-10)

Science as a Human Endeavour: Through computer-building, students explore how scientific knowledge is used to solve real-world problems, linking directly to the curriculum’s emphasis on the nature and development of science.

Physical Sciences: Understanding the principles behind computer operation involves fundamental concepts of physics and electricity, helping to meet specific science curriculum outcomes.

Mathematics (F-10)

Number and Algebra: Building computers involves a range of mathematical skills, from basic arithmetic to more complex problem-solving. This practical application helps reinforce classroom learning.

Measurement and Geometry: Precise measurement and spatial reasoning are crucial when assembling computer parts, providing hands-on experience that ties back to these mathematical concepts.

Critical & Creative Thinking

Problem Solving and Innovation: Our sessions challenge students to think critically and creatively. They must troubleshoot issues, innovate solutions, and think outside the box, aligning with the curriculum’s emphasis on developing these crucial skills.

Personal & Social Capability

Collaboration and Communication: Working in groups fosters teamwork and communication skills. Students learn to share ideas, give and receive feedback, and collaborate effectively, meeting the curriculum’s personal and social capability goals.

Self-Management and Ethical Understanding: Building a computer from scratch requires patience, resilience, and a strong work ethic. Our sessions help students develop these personal qualities, which are essential for lifelong learning.
