The Kids' Conference was founded in 2011 by Stephen Spain from the Australian Catholic University and Jo Clyne from the History Teachers' Association of Victoria (HTAV).

The conference involves short speaker sessions in which students in primary or secondary education can present innovative digital projects relating to history or geography. Students can present solo or in small groups.

The conference is run in a warm and friendly environment to provide support and encouragement to all student presenters.

Previous presenters have been ages 7-18 years. You can see examples of their work presented on the HTAV website.
