Event description

Description

Our Future Of Transport school holiday program will see students from across Brisbane coming together for a day of innovation and ideation as they work with one of Queensland's leaders in the automotive space to redesign the future of transport.

From looking at how new companies such as Uber and GoGet are changing how we drive to looking at how we can use new and emerging technologies to help repair cars; our 'Future Of Transport' hackaton with RACQ will see students spending a day working with the RACQ team as they tackle a series of challenges associated with how we drive now, and into the future. This hackathon has been designed to fuse STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) with entrepreneurship and innovation to provide a fun, fast-paced program for students as they work with industry mentors to innovate and create. Hosted at RACQ Headquarters in Brisbane, students will be exploring the range of exciting projects happening behind the scenes at RACQ and seeing how a business that is over 100 years old is embracing the new wave of innovation with technology. With no prior experience needed, this is a fantastic opportunity for passionate and driven young people over their school holidays.

Our hackathon will be running from 9am to 4pm. We will, however, have supervised free time for the students between 8:30am and 5pm should parents wish to drop students off early and pick them up later.

Our Future Of Transport hackathon has been designed for high school students (grade 7-12) with interests in science, technology, engineering, mathematics, business and design. No prior knowledge is required, all we ask is that students are passionate and willing to learn.

We ask that students bring their own lunch each day as well as a water bottle and a device if they have one. We will be providing snacks throughout the day as well as pens and paper.

What will students have at the end of the day?

By the end of the day students will be presenting their ideas formed by the challenges set to them around innovation in transport. Throughout the day they will be developing skills in critical and creative thinking, teamwork and collaboration, networking, pitching and design thinking.

Getting To The Venue?

Students will be working out of the innovation space at the RACQ hub in Eight Mile Plains. There is plenty of parking as well as a drop off zone for students. There is also a bus stop just outside the front gates.
