Propeller Enterprises’ Entrepreneurial Workshops for Years 2-12

Propeller Enterprises’ Entrepreneurial Workshops for Years 2-12

Propeller Enterprises is an entrepreneurial initiative of All Saints’ College which focuses on nurturing student ideas and creating platforms for students to develop the curiosity, creativity and skills to be leaders of our burgeoning innovation economy. It is envisaged that Propeller Enterprises will be a hub for students who are keen to identify problems, and then explore and develop ideas, solutions or products to solve these issues. Students will work across a wide range of sectors including information technology, social justice, business, service, Science and the Arts.

To launch Propeller Enterprises, we are offering two workshops which will engage students in developing 21st century skills.

Three-day Challenge Workshop: ‘Balance of the Planet’ for Years 7-12

How can we create a sustainable future for the planet? Ever wonder how change happens? Ever wonder how some people seem to have the power to make the world a better place? Ever wonder if you might have that power?

Come and find out at Balance of the Planet!

The three-day challenge is collaboration-based and reaches across the arts and sciences. Come prepared to see where drama, writing, politics, history, geography, psychology, economics, mathematics, science and engineering meet.

Balance of the Planet puts you in the centre of addressing the global environmental crisis. From acid rain to water pollution, from nuclear accidents to global warming, from consumer goods to starvation – you’ll navigate your way through the array of problems and use your newly-acquired knowledge to create a sustainable future for the planet. Your success depends on your ability to balance the world’s social and economic well-being with the vitality of the earth’s ecology.

The three-day challenge is facilitated by Kim Flintoff (Curtin Learning Futures) with visits from experts in the field to consult with you on your questions and ideas. You will work with your peers to investigate, generate and propose solutions. It’s all about working together and thinking creatively to solve some of the world’s biggest problems.
