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:

 Zoom Call

The workshop will be taking place via Zoom. Students will be connecting with our facilitators on a Zoom video call for the class.

Digital WhiteBoard

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.

Slack Channel

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. 

Headphones 

We recommend all students completing the programs have a pair of headphones with a microphone.
