Industry Aligned Challenges | Free Resource Development | Youth Advisory
A big part of what we do at BOP is connecting the classroom with the real world, and as part of this we frequently work with industry leaders and government to develop and deliver impactful learning experiences to students across the country.
Our team has the ability to develop and deliver tailor-made programs for your industry or focus area to get young people innovating and creating with your organisation in mind.
Here are some of the ways we engage with industry:
Students consulting on challenges facing your organisation.
State-wide or national competitions for primary and high school students.
Branded resources for teachers and students to use in the classroom.
Branded incursions to teach students about careers in your organisation/industry.
Industry-aligned school holiday programs hosted at your offices.
Young people designing solutions to the challenges facing your industry.
Since beginning our work in the education space we have had the pleasure of working with over 50,000 students in 36 cities around the world. We had had the opportunity to collaborate with a number of partners along the way, including the following:
Careers In The Heavy Vehicle Industry
As part of the Brisbane Truck Show 2021 we had the pleasure of working with over 1,000 high school students to explore careers in the heavy vehicle industry.
Designed By Young People, For Young People
As part of the Queensland Family And Child's Commission we hosted a hackathon aimed at getting young people to develop solutions to support the mental health of young people in Queensland.
Eliminating E-Waste With STEM + Sustainability
We teamed up with the team at Oracle, one of the world's largest technology companies, to run a full-day hackathon exploring how we could repurpose their 'code cards'!
Small Business In Your Community
Getting in touch with our entrepreneurial roots, we had the pleasure of working with the Beenleigh Yatala Chamber Of Commerce to run a term-long program that saw students building and launching their own small businesses!
