With curriculum time getting busier and busier, a great way to inspire and empower students is before and after school with extracurricular programs for students. Our after school programs are fantastic at doing this and allow us to get students thinking big and focussing on cross-curricular, project-based learning as they tackle challenges, build skills and work on projects that get them thinking about the world around them and the exciting opportunities open to their generation.
With everything from designing future cities to launching influencer brands, building businesses, working with technology and more, we have a range of standard programs to choose from, or we're able to customise a program to your school community. Our after school programs typically run for 6-8 weeks and cost $30 per student per week.
Sourcing Innovative Ideas From Bright Young Minds
Growing up in a world surrounded by touchscreen devices, social media and wifi connectivity, young people today think very differently from other generations that have come before. A great way to get your team thinking differently about how you approach challenges and projects, would be to work with our next generation in a hackthon.
Our Industry Innovator Hackathons are day-long programs designed to bring students together from schools around the local community in order to develop innovative solutions to challenges pitched by your organisation.
Often delivered in your office space or at a local co-working space, these programs will see students pitched a challenge and ask to develop a solution ready to present back at the end of the day. Over the course of the program, students will be hearing from members of your team, learning about your organisation, and using a design thinking approach to develop their solutions.
This is not only a great way for your team to source innovative ideas for projects you're working on, but a great way to help expose students to the diverse range of career pathways available in your industry.
The BOP Team are delivering future focussed learning experiences across the country almost every day of the year. As we work hard to tailor programs to every industry partner we work with, we deliver hackathons on a diverse range of topics. Here are some of our recent programs:
Innovation In Aviation
As a leading Australia airline, Virgin Australia worked with us over a number of years to host hackathons to get young people reimaging the in-flight experience.
Young People In Startups
We had the pleasure of working with Queensland's premier innovation hub to run a series of hackathons to get young people exploring the future of coworking.
Youth Mental Health Hackathon
We teamed up with the QFCC to host a virtual hackathon with 40 young people across Queensland to find out how they would support youth mental health.
As COVID sent Australia into lockdown, we worked with the Gold Coast Junior Council to host a community leadership hackathon with local young people to explore how they could respond.
At BOP, we have the pleasure of working with organisations big and small to help them connect with young innovative and brilliant thinkers. With our team delivering hackathons across the country on a daily basis, make sure to connect to see how we can help you source some innovative solutions and ideas for your team.
