Teen Start-Up: The Science of Everyday

Northcott Drive , Building 30 - UNSW Canberra at ADFACanberra ACT 2600

Simply studying STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) is only half the story. While STEM encourages innovation; entrepreneurship is what delivers it to the world. Not every child will become an entrepreneur, but we can inspire every young person to have an entrepreneurial mindset – to think creatively and critically; to collaborate and communicate effectively; to focus, commit and have the grit to persevere when things get tough.

Teen Start-Up introduces a new school holiday program this September that explores how the Natural, Formal and Social Sciences can be applied to everyday life in innovative and creative ways. During the two-day program, students will have the opportunity to:
– Invent, explore and come up with their own designs to solve everyday problems
– Engage with researchers, scientists and subject matter experts
– Meet the entrepreneurs using science to innovate
– Collaborate and form teams
– Complete challenges
– Present their ideas
– And WIN!

Thursday 28 September & Friday 29 September, 9:00am – 4:00pm
