Secondary computing enrichment activities

Encourage your students to develop important life skills through enrichment and engage with the wider community in practical, enjoyable, and meaningful ways.

The National Centre for Computing Education (NCCE) enrichment activities will help inspire curiosity in your students and broaden their educational experience with fun hands-on learning.

Taking part in enrichment activities champions computing by:

  • providing an opportunity for students to pursue their learning in their own area of interest and strength
  • studying concepts to a greater depth and complexity
  • providing examples of how computing can be applied to real-world experiences
