Our Inventors Lab school holiday program will see primary school students from across Brisbane coming together for one action packed day of designing, prototyping and building their own products and business.

Learn what it takes to build your product in just one day. Join us at the Junior Inventors Lab where you’ll be working with engineers and entrepreneurs to prototype products and build businesses over the school holidays.

Working with an expert team of facilitators, students will be challenged to design and prototype their own product followed by building a business around that product to ensure they have a business and product ready to pitch to a panel of judges.

Throughout the program students will also be learning from startup founders, product designers and engineers as they participate in mini masterclasses and workshops. Students will be learning about tools such as 3D design and 3D printing, microcontrollers, business model canvases and pitching templates.

Students will have the option in the program to either work independently or in a group as they first learn about business and product design by reverse engineering their favourite products and brands before then being challenged to design and build their own.

Our Junior Inventors program has been designed for driven and passionate students wanting to learn about technology, innovation, product design and business. Open to students in grade 4-6, no prior experience is required and we ask that students come with an open mind and a willingness to learn.

Frequently Asked Questions:

What Do Students Need To Bring?

We ask that students bring their own morning tea and lunch as well as a device (laptop or tablet) if possible. We will have iPads for students to borrow, but if they would be more comfortable working on their own laptop or tablet we would recommend they bring theirs. We will be providing all equipment for the students to use over the day as well as some snacks throughout the program.

How Do I Get To The Venue?

Our Inventors Lab program will be held at the Fishburners Coworking space in Queen Street Mall, Brisbane. Access to the venue is through the Old Regent Theatre Information Centre on Queen Street Mall. The venue is a short walk from Central Train Station as well as a number of bus interchanges including King George Square, Adelaide Street and Queen Street Mall. There are also pick up/drop off zones on Edward and Adelaide Street as well as paid parking in Wintergarden and the Myer Centre.

Will Students Be Working Alone Or In Groups?

Students will have the option of either working by themselves or in groups that they are able to choose. We will have a series of challenges throughout the camp that will allow students to mix groups but it will be up to the students to choose their own group.

Pick Up And Drop Off Time?

Our program will be running from 9am - 3pm but we will have the option for students to arrive from 8:30am and depart by 4pm if they wish to arrive early/stay late.

What Skills Do Students Need?

This program doesn’t require students to have any prior experience and all we ask is that students are willing and eager to learn. We will be teaching students about business, product design, 3D design and pitching and we are able to cater for students that have advanced knowledge on these topics to students that are working with these topics for the first time.
