Aviation camp takes flight these school holidays
Part teen business competition and part aviation holiday camp, Aviation Teen Start-Up Camp at Canberra Airport is the perfect spot for your teen who is looking for a fun and challenging aviation experience during the school holidays.
Perfect for young people who are fascinated by airports and airplanes, Aviation Teen Start-Up Camp provides a great opportunity for rich learning in science, technology and engineering. The innovation competition, for 11- to 16-year-olds, is being held on the 11th and 12th of July at the Canberra Airport. With a focus on aviation and aerospace innovation, a highlight of the competition is the behind-the-scenes tour of Canberra Airport.
Over the two days, students will work together in teams to come up with an idea for a product or service that they believe provides a solution to an aviation-related problem their generation will face in the future. The event concludes with the students pitching their concepts to a panel of judges. Students will look at the problems and opportunities involved in the aviation and aerospace industries, tackling both practical and big-picture problems.
This annual event is delivered as a partnership between Canberra Airport and local innovation consultancy, Lighthouse Business Innovation Centre (Lighthouse).
