Our BOP Online Classes are online workshops that will see primary and high school students from around the world connecting, collaborating and creating as they work on challenges ranging from the future of aviation to entrepreneurship, community leadership and more. With new workshops and programs added every week, we've got something for all learners.
Online After School Program
The Young Innovators after school program is a series of workshops for students interested in learning what it takes to design, create, and innovate.

They can take their pick of the following sessions or choose them all!

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.
What You'll Need
We've got an action-packed program planned for the students and we ask that they have the following equipment ready before they join the class.
A Computer + Webcam + Charger
All students will need their own laptop/PC computer with a webcam and we recommend charging it during the class.
We recommend all students completing the programs have a pair of headphones with a microphone.
A Notebook And Pen
We recommend students have some pen and paper nearby if they want to take physical notes or draw things on paper.
A Quiet Space With Strong Internet
Background noise is always distracting for others on a call and a strong internet connection is very important.
Google Chrome Installed
We ask that all students install the Google Chrome browser on their device before joining the class.
This isn't a requirements, but we would highly recommend you download the free Zoom app on your device for improved experience.
