BOP Industries And Robotics Playground Are Proud To Present
Countdown Until Launch
Designing, Creating and Inventing To Bring Our Ideas To Life
Monday 29th June - Saturday 4th July
Inventors Week has been designed to show students how they can design, create and invent from anywhere in the world as they learn how to design robots, build products, design apps and bring their ideas to life.
As a collaboration between BOP Industries and Robotics Playground, Inventors week will feature online classes run over the course of the week for primary and high school students.
With programs created by a team of passionate, young engineers, entrepreneurs, designers and teachers, these programs have been created to give students the opportunity to create in a fun and relaxed online environment.
These classes have been designed for students wanting to learn how they can bring their big ideas to life. There is no prior experience needed, all we ask is that students are eager to learn.
Each day we will be running classes around a new topic. We will be running a session for primary school students in the morning and a session for high school students in the afternoon. Here is the program for the week:
Monday - The Process Of Engineering
Monday 29th June, 2020
Have you ever wondered what it’s like to be an engineer? How did the engineers at SpaceX create the awesome SpaceX Dragon? What does it take to be able to design the 3D printing face shield to keep our doctors safe? It will be answered in this awesome session.
Tuesday - Build A Business
Tuesday 30th June, 2020
Looking for something to keep you busy over your holidays? Have you ever considered starting a business? Our Business Builders session is designed to show young people how they can build and launch their own small business over their holidays.
Wednesday - Design A Product
Wednesday 1st July, 2020
How do we start with nothing and create a bicycle or a jet engine? The answer is being able to use Computer-aided design (CAD). CADing is a great example of utilising both creativity and critical thinking sides of the brain to create something awesome.
Thursday - Design An App
Thursday 2nd July, 2020
Have you ever had an idea for an app that you think could take the world by storm? Currently planning the next flappy bird? Or perhaps building a competitor for tiktok? Our App Designers program has been created to show students some of the essentials of app design as they design their own app.
Friday - Designing A Robot
Friday 3rd July, 2020
Everyone has heard of the curiosity rover, the robot that roams Mars, but how did all the different teams work together to create curiosity? Each team would have different focuses and it all has to come together in the end so how did they manage that?
Saturday - Community Leaders
Saturday 4th July, 2020
Have you ever wanted to help someone in your local community? Our Community Leaders online workshop has been designed to show students how they can do exactly that as they develop a product or service to support people in their local community.

How The Workshops Will Run
We've planned an action-packed range of online workshops for students over Inventors Week. These workshops are designed to be highly interactive and lots of fun for participants and work using three main tools. Here's how the workshops will run:
The workshop will be taking place via Zoom. Students will be connecting with our facilitators on a Zoom video call for the class.
During the workshop, students will be sent a link to a free online whiteboarding tool. This will allow them to bring their ideas to life and receive guidance form the facilitators.
Throughout the class, students will also be using a collaborative Slack channel as the facilitator shares resources, links, and videos for the students.
All of the tools above are free, simple and easy to use and our facilitators will be available in the lead up to the class to help answer any technical support questions that you, or your students may have.
