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.

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.

Zoom Installed

This isn't a requirements, but we would highly recommend you download the free Zoom app on your device for improved experience.
