Description

Ticket sales close 5pm AEST Wednesday 18 September.

Design a Drone workshop is an opportunity to empower the next generation of makers, designers, entrepreneurs and inventors in Years 7-12 to design a drone for any purpose. This will be a part of the World Drone Congress held at Brisbane Convention and Exhibition Centre on September 26-27.

The purpose of this workshop is to give students an opportunity to meet those who work in the drone industry and to solve real world problems with the use of drones. Prizes include the DJI Tello Drones which will be given to each individual on the winning teams for the best design and the best concept.

During the session students will be grouped into threes to design solutions around themes and topics such as the Environment, Fire and Emergency Services, Social impact just to name a few.

Participating individuals will also receive a certificate of participation which they can use and add onto their resume. There will also be prizes up for grabs including some drones!

The cost of the workshop is $50 per team of 3 (plus booking fee) but if you are experiencing any financial difficulties feel free to reach out to angela@hackathonsaustralia.com

This is a World of Drones Education initiative and will be run by Hackathons Australia.

What if I don't have a team or know anyone else going? The beauty of this workshop is the ability to meet new people and work with them. This is a great networking and learning opportunity.
