We have provided opportunities for Sunshine Coast students to gain exposure to startup methodologies by delivering a range of activities with our key partners. Hub staff initiated and delivered theStartup Weekend for Youth- the first of its kind in Australia.
Hub staff worked with teachers from Mountain Creek State High School's STEM Academy to embed lean startup principles and methodologies into each of the grade 7, 8 and 9 semester length courses. The Lean Startup units are suspended for semester 1, 2020 due to remote learning however the situation may be sufficiently different to again offer the Lean Startup unit in semester 2, 2020.
Additionally, Hub staff are working with Mountain Creek staff from the Digital Innovation faculty to offer a Certificate III in Information, Digital Media and Technology with Entrepreneurship. The course has been delivered by the TAFE for 2018 and 2019 and from 2020 is being delivered on-campus by Hub/school staff.
