Program overview

Australia is heavily reliant on connected supply chains to provide domestic freight links and gateways for international trade. Currently, the size and number of trucks on our highways are causing significant safety, environmental and community consequences.

To solve this problem we’re bringing together a group of young passionate innovators to innovate and create to help solve Australia’s transportation issues. The Australian Government has approved the construction of a new inland railway to help connect Brisbane and Melbourne and in this program, you’ll be learning about the project and looking at the different ways this project is going to change Australian rail freight transport. You will be working through a series of interactive learning activities,  participate in group sessions to solve some of the industry’s key challenges – investigating the history of the railway industry, analysing the benefits of the inland railway, problem-solving for the current situation and embracing the opportunities that come along with it.

How the class will run 

We’re incredibly excited to be welcoming our students onto online classes and we’ve got an exciting class planned for them. When you purchase your ticket you’ll receive an email straight away with detailed instructions on how the class will run and how to get set up. Here is some high level information if you have questions around how the class will run:

Live Stream + Program Page

When you purchase your ticket you’ll receive an email with a password for our program page. This is the central hub for the class and will feature a live stream from our classroom when the class starts.

Communication Channel

Throughout the class, students will be using an online communication tool. This is a team tool used to allow students to work with their group and contact facilitators.

Group Video Call

When it comes to completing the challenges, students will join a private video call to work with their 3-4 group members. Facilitators will be joining these calls to work with the students as they develop their ideas.

Live Collaboration Board

To complete their challenges students will be working with their group members on an online whiteboard to brainstorm ideas and present their solutions. This tool will open in their browser and will let them record ideas quickly and easily.

All of the tools above are online and don’t require students to download any software. Students will be able to do everything in one browser and we will have facilitators working with students to ensure they can use the tools coincidentally through the program.

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 + Charger

All students will need their own laptop or PC computer and we recommend plugging it in to charge during the online program.

Headphones

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

Notebook And Pen

We recommend students have some pen and paper nearby if they want to take physical notes or draw things on paper.

Completed Information Form

Students will be receiving a brief information form that we ask they complete prior to starting the program.

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.
