A school holiday program with a difference. Re-think how we practice democracy. Design solutions. Have your say. What matters to your teen? The freedom to express themselves and wear whatever suits them? What about the right to choose their own friends and hang out with whoever they like? Or debates around rights and responsibilities; or whether your rules are fair and just? Debating these issues at home is a great starting point for exploring participatory democracy. At the Teen Start-Up: People Power innovation competition, we take this one step further and challenge our young students to imagine how they could make the world a better place by re-thinking how we practice democracy in Australia. Teen Start-Up: People Power is a 3-day innovation competition for high school and College students (ages 11-18 years) run during the January school holidays.


Over 3 days, students are taken through the innovation development process from idea to execution. Students can work in teams or individually to come up with an idea for a product or service that they believe provides a solution to a problem their generation will face in the future. The event concludes with the students pitching their concepts to a panel of judges. Students will meet with local entrepreneurs and subject matter experts. They will also enjoy a facilitated learning program at the Museum of Australian Democracy to inspire their thinking. WHEN: Monday 22, Tuesday 23 and Wednesday 24 January 2018, 9:00am to 4:00pm WHERE: Museum of Australian Democracy (MoAD) at Old Parliament House, 18 King George Terrace, Parkes ACT COST: $180.00 (+GST) per person for the 3-day program $160.00 (+ GST) per person for 2 or more children A limited number of scholarships are available courtesy of the Museum of Australian Democracy.
