Ideate to Create – School Holiday Workshop

July 11 @ 8:30 am - 5:30 pm

School Holiday Workshop with Bop Industries and Robotics Playground

We’re on a mission to inspire the next generation of STEAM superstars and young entrepreneurs! Our Ideate to Create program is perfect for students who want to learn more about STEAM and how to build a business of their own. Students will be inspired as they design and create their ideas out of River City Labs, one of Brisbane’s leading innovation hubs.

We’ll start off the program by showing students the importance of engineering and entrepreneurship through a series of mini STEAM challenges. Students will then come together in teams to identify real-world issues and design creative solutions for these issues using their understanding of the engineering and innovation process. After being given a set budget, we’ll have students use different materials to build their very own prototype product to bring their ideas to life, followed by a master class on how to brand and market their new product. Students will also have the opportunity to learn from guest speakers and industry mentors with experience in prototyping, design and business. At the end of the day each team will get to pitch their business and product to a panel of expert judges.

This camp is perfect for students interested in STEM, business and design, and gives students the chance to work out of a state-of-the-art innovation space.
