Teaching the fundamentals of computer programming through the creative process of making music and visual art.

It’s not just an art/music course, and it’s not just a “coding” course: playing to both halves of your brain and having fun.

ANU Extension students receive credit towards an ANU bachelor degree for the studies successfully completed through this program. ANU Extension courses can also contribute to a student’s ATAR aggregate.

Students who successfully undertake studies in ANU Extension and fulfill the academic requirements for their preferred program will gain tier 2 priority admission through the Admission, Scholarships and Accommodation application system and may receive an early conditional offer of entry into an ANU bachelor degree program.

ANU Extension is open to Australian domestic students who are enrolled at an ACT college or school (government or non-government). College co-requisites for courses apply.

A program run by the ANU School of Computing within the ASD-ANU Co-Lab, open by invitation to students in Years 10–12.

The Canberra Computer Science Enrichment (CCSE) program aims to develop algorithmic thinking in a fun and interactive environment. Our aim is enrichment rather than acceleration through the school syllabus. Students explore a range of extra-curricular material with an emphasis on solving problems. Previous CCSE sessions have covered topics including cellular automata, game theory, dynamic programming, recursion, and Turing machines. Although teaching programming is not our main goal, students often explore ideas by writing computer code.

Computing and Maths teachers should contact ccse@anu.edu.au to express interest or nominate students for the CCSE program.
