Innovate - Create - Educate
School Holiday Programs
At BOP we're on a mission to show young people the amazing things they can do at any age, from anywhere. With school holiday programs designed for primary and high school students on topics ranging from smart cities to young inventors, we offer a diverse range of programs over the school holidays and through the term.
These school holidays we will be getting back in the classroom with a series of workshops open for students in Brisbane to innovate and create together. These programs will be facilitated by our passionate team of facilitators and will feature separate classes for primary and high school students on different topics.
