The festival featured local IT company Loaded Gamer, and the Eden Game Development Centre, who showcased games, coding and other activities including: Interactive technology gear, a Virtual Reality installation, Lego robotics and 3D printing with Bega Valley Shire Libraries

But wait! There was more…..

Alongside the Science on the Move and Intro to Gamer Dev Jam exhibits, Science Week participants had the opportunity to visit stands run by members of the Sapphire Coast Regional Science Hub.  This was a wonderful opportunity to find out how local organisations are creating dynamic science engagement activities for the whole community.
