After the Discovery program kick-off workshop hosted at the SSE Campus in Ultimo earlier in this year, Year 9 students from Hoxton Park High School continued working to further develop their ideas to solve real-world problems with support from our program mentors during weekly zoom sessions through term 4.
On Wednesday 8 December, the program culminated in a presentation day at Hoxton Park High School where each group presented their solutions to a judging panel included Hoxton Park High School teachers Ms Huynh and Ms Ly, and Phillip from SSE. The winning team with the project titled ‘Home to Farmers’ took home the prize, but all teams did a remarkable job developing their ideas, and coming up with creative solutions to solve real-world problems. Congratulations to all students who participated.
The Discovery program is a blended innovation program designed to help students and teams develop sought-after skills in creativity, design thinking, and entrepreneurship. Participants learn and apply entrepreneurial skills to work through real-world problems and collaborate to ideate, innovate, pivot, and scale solutions that can make an impact. The program includes an immersive one-day workshop and online mentoring sessions throughout the program.
