If you're a Gold Coast high school student with an innovative, technological idea waiting to be discovered, then the Mayor's Telstra Technology Awards are for you!

There are some great prizes to be won, including $5000 dollars for the winning school!

Come along to the Ideation Workshop 

Presented by :

 start up apprentice

Are you an aspiring innovator or entrepreneur? Got a big idea but not sure what to do next? Ideation taps into the place where those creative, intuitive, innovative ideas dwell and represent all stages of a thought cycle, from innovation to development, to actualisation.

 Entry to the Ideation Workshop is open to all Gold Coast high school students (years 8 – 12), their parents and teachers and you don’t even have to enter The Mayor’s Telstra Technology Award to attend.

Join the founders of Startup Apprentice, Sharon Hunneybell and Sam Winter, as they take you through a workshop focused on Ideation - a reinvention of traditional brainstorming that promotes breakthroughs from entrenched habits of thought.

 If you’re thinking of entering The Mayor’s Telstra Technology Awards this year (or even next year), register your attendance at this workshop to tap into new ways of thought that will take your idea to the next level!
