Event description

Description

Sandbox: Describes a game mode where the player may explore the game world freely, doing virtually any activity available to them.

UQ Idea Hub Sandbox is a two day workshop (9.00-3.30 pm) designed for Year 7 to Year 12 students. This hands-on program focuses on fostering an entrepreneurship mindset, to support the participants to be better learners, leaders and professionals. We will learn agile, business and design thinking tools to support the students to identify complex problems and design impactful solutions. We have evolved our workshop into two days to include outside activities, more interaction with entrepreneurs and the university life.

Ideation, teamwork, market analysis, customers empathy, networking, learning by doing, prototyping and pitching are some of the skills and activities students will be part of throughout the program. On the last day, the teams will get an opportunity to pitch in front of their peers, entrepreneurs and parents.

This program is part of our UQ Idea Hub Discovery activities, where we offer the foundations to entrepreneurial thinking by introducing High School students to user identification, problems and impact, and key business ideas such as target audience, problem identification and problem-market fit.
