Description

Innovators on the Couch event is a culmination of a 5 week Innovation Challenge involving 5 high schools in the Onkaparinga region.

Join us at this inaugural ideas-festival featuring young innovators pitching their BIG IDEAS. The festival brings together dozens of students from local high schools who've been working collaboratively in small teams using design thinking to solve some of the biggest challenges - aka wicked problems - facing our region from climate change to mental health.

Young innovators will pitch to a panel of innovation champions including Margaret Ledwith, who is Associate Professor and Director of Innovation and Enterprise at New Venture Institute, Flinders Uni. Other panelists include Headspace Noarlunga.

We also have keynote listeners and a guest speaker extraordinaire Megha Wijewardane. Megha is a Space Activist, anchor host of Australian Flight Chanel and Australia's only Juniour Ambasador to NASA.
