How do you want to change the world?
“You see things; and say, ‘Why?’ But I dream things that never were; and I say, ‘Why not’?” – George Bernard Shaw
Tap that imagination and turn it into a tangible prototype at this interactive workshop. This is a one-day workshop that will take place on May 28th. We've designed this workshop for 13 to 18 year olds with an interest in creation, invention and problem-solving. Academy Xi has partnered with Teenage Entrepreneur to give participants access to a mentorship program after the workshop.
Whether you’re an aspiring young entrepreneur or a budding change-maker, this programme will take your creative problem-solving skills to the next level. Kicking off with problem identification, we’ll run you through the entire process of ideating and creating. This hybrid, collaborative approach to problem-solving teaches you best-practice ideation methods: accelerated design thinking, product vision exploration, research techniques, feature identification and prioritisation.  
You’ll leave with your own clickable mobile app to test and develop, and access to Teenage Entrepreneur; a place for teenagers interested in entrepreneurship to connect, learn skills, find mentors, solve problems, and grow their skills and their business.
We give you the freedom to choose your own direction from the get-go; if there’s an idea or problem-space you’re passionate about, bring it along and we’ll help you bring it to life.
What you’ll get out of it:
  • Gain a framework to be able to problem solve effectively
  • Learn fundamentals of UX Design
  • Create an innovative solution to a problem
  • Create a low fidelity digital mobile prototype
  • Gain tangible entrepreneurial skills
  • Access mentors specialised in entrepreneurship, helping find opportunities after workshop completion
