Those with an appetite for entrepreneurship are encouraged to join in the Future of Food Design Challenge with the local Entrepreneurial Educator Exchange.
Following the success of its inaugural meeting last year, the Bundaberg chapter of the Entrepreneurial Educator Exchange (E3) will gather on Tuesday 20 February where they will work together to solve pressing issues both locally and nationally.
Designed and facilitated by Young Change Agents and hosted at Kepnock State High School (KSHS), the 90 minute challenge will pose questions around topics such as health, sustainability, agriculture and technology.
KSHS Entrepreneurial Educator and Year 12 Coordinator Nicole Amey said they were hoping to get a range of participants involved.
“Bundaberg has one of the strongest entrepreneurial education ecosystems in Australia with engaged industry, council, educators, students, community and alumni,” Nicole said.
“We want to make it even better by strengthening our relationships, getting more members, and solving future of food challenges.”
Young Change Agents Educator in Residence Renae Jones and Program and Indigenous Engagement Lead Tiffani Season will guide teams through the process where they will work together to form their ideas before presenting them to the group.
“Participants will have the chance to work together on solving pressing issues for the Bundaberg Region and Australia whilst having a great time and working in teams,” Nicole said.
“The added benefit for educators is that they can then access the resources to run this challenge with their students over the term or as an incursion with national prizes and awards for students who enter and become finalists in the challenge.”
