The Fiftysix Opportunity Workshop offers young people aged 11 – 25 a chance to learn about the skills of the future with seventeen-year-old inventor, social entrepreneur and educational pioneer Taj Pabari and the Fiftysix Creations team.

According to the Foundation for Young Australians (FYA) ‘The New Work Order’, 60 percent of students are currently being trained in jobs that will be radically changed by automation.

Presented as part of National Science Week 2017 by Scitech, Spacecubed, RAC WA and Propel Youth Arts WA, this exciting workshop opportunity seeks to address future ways of working by inspiring young people to embrace the world of creativity through technology and innovation.

Workshop participants will start off by setting goals for their future, followed by rotational activities such as Tablet Exploration, Virtual Reality and Entrepreneurship. Participants will form ‘squad groups’ and have the opportunity to create and present their very own business or social change concept.

The Fiftysix Virtual Reality Headset will be provided to you on a complementary basis however other Workshop material (including the Fiftysix tablet computers) will be available for purchase at the conclusion of the Workshop.

There will be a professional photographer capturing moments from the day and all students aged under 18 will need a parent / guardian to complete a release form on the day.

The Fiftysix Opportunity Workshop is supported by the Australian Government and the Western Australia Coordinating Committee for National Science Week 2017 and has been enabled thanks to a partnership with WesCEF.

Workshops also at 1:30 – 3:30pm and 4:00 – 6:00pm.
