About Us ...
Stories Galore is dedicated to creating stories and workshops that are visual and interactive to allow kids and adult's to share their own creative stories.
Stories are a powerful learning medium and using tools such as computer programming, games development, Amazing Races, and publishing Books, you and your kids can be creators not just consumers of stories and technology.
At Stories Galore we believe that through stories we can engage curiosity, imagination, and empathy to bring stories to life. We aim to motivate people to interact and make emotional connections to engage learning.
Stories Galore is based in Townsville, Queensland. We are happy to travel to teach kids and adults how to be creative with Computer Code, Stories, and Robots throughout Australia and the World.
