Event description

Description

Just as a builder plans before constructing, there must be design before coding. Teen Start-Up: Digital Design explores the ‘why’ rather than the ‘how’ when it comes to digital technology.

This 2-day innovation competition will challenge all our young problem-solvers, idea generators and creative thinkers to come up with ways of solving real world problems using digital technology. Whether your child’s passion is technology or creativity this school holiday program will encourage them to be curious, use their imagination and think critically about the world around them.

It is a great opportunity to meet local entrepreneurs and subject matter experts and explore how different kinds of technology can be applied to everyday life in innovative and creative ways. From self-driving cars and virtual reality in mental health; to using games to make learning fun and augmented reality to explore urban landscapes – we will look at how digital design can solve some of the problems this generation will face in the future.

During the two-day program, students will have the opportunity to:

  • Invent, explore and come up with their own designs to solve everyday problems;

  • Meet the entrepreneurs using technology to innovate;

  • Collaborate and form teams;

  • Complete challenges;

  • Present their ideas;

  • And WIN!
