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 programs designed for primary and high school students on topics ranging from future cities to sustainable futures, aviation, business, and more, we've got something for everyone over their holiday break.
As COVID restrictions ease around the world, our learner's safety is our number one priority. That is why this school holidays we have decided to run the majority of our workshops online, with a few small programs hosted at schools across Brisbane. Please see below for more information on our programs this holidays, and if you have any questions, please don't hesitate to contact our team at email@example.com.
This school holidays we will be running a series of online workshops open for students around the world 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.
Monday 29th June - Saturday 4th July
Inventors Week has been designed to show students how they can design, create and invent from anywhere in the world as they learn how to design robots, build products, design apps and bring their ideas to life.
As a collaboration between BOP Industries and Robotics Playground, Inventors week will feature online classes run over the course of the week for primary and high school students.
For the winter school holidays, we will have a small number of physical workshops running at select schools across Brisbane. These programs will be open to a small number of students from these schools to limit the risk of transmission while we innovate, create, and design.
