Applications for the 2018 National Questacon Invention Convention are now OPEN!

The National Questacon Invention Convention is an all-expenses paid, five day workshop in Canberra, held every January. It’s immersive, but also fun – play, make, design and laugh your way through a week of inspiration and creativity.

Twenty-five lucky delegates will have the opportunity to be a part of a once in a lifetime experience where they will be exposed to the latest and greatest technology, some of the country’s brightest minds, and the chance to innovate their own ideas and solutions around the theme, Future Earth.

Over the 5 days, delegates will work towards prototyping an idea surrounding the theme Future Earth whilst gaining a range of skills, entrepreneurial and business awareness and most importantly, confidence in idea generation.

The Questacon Invention Convention will be held in Canberra from 15 – 19 January, 2017. Students aged 14 – 18 years are eligible to apply.

There are just 25 places available for this all-expenses paid trip, so apply now by downloading the National Invention Convention Application Pack.  Applications close at 5pm AEST, 16 October, 2017.
