Young Innovators launched their summer holidays workshop through a Parent Information Night on Friday 14 December 2018 at the Campbelltown Youth Centre (CYC).
The program commenced with a brief introduction of Young Innovators and their aim and objectives. Young Innovators was founded on the 26 April 2017 with the aim to bring a passion driven, interactional learning approach to young children.
Through collaboration with the children, the learning delivery aims made the students become smarter and productive learners where students were engaged through a series of workshops during the school holidays.
During the launch, Shafqat Ali, the team coordinator went through a series of workshops explaining the purpose of each workshop that runs from 6 to 9 in the evening.
He also highlighted that these workshops will bring a new kind of passion for learning and students will gain new knowledge by interacting with each other and through individual experiences.
“This approach has no books, exams, assignments or homework as it is a student centred approach to learning,” Shafqat explained.
The workshops include, Google for Study, Manage Your HSC Studies, Manage your Uni, Parents Info Night, Creative Imaging & Design Thinking, Game Programming, Get A Dream Job, Cyber Safety For You and Getting In Someone’s Heart.
