Questacon Invention Convention

The Questacon Invention Conventions are multi-day workshops for 14-18 year olds, where you can work with mentor makers from Questacon and innovators, inventors and entrepreneurs from around Australia, to turn your ideas into reality.

National Questacon Invention Convention

The National Questacon Invention Convention is an all-expenses paid, five day workshop which runs in the January school holidays here in Canberra. This program gives 25 delegates aged 14-18 from all around Australia the opportunity to play, make and create with us for one week. Delegates will spend the week designing and developing a prototype that relates to a theme we give them.

Applications are now OPEN and have been extended to Sunday 21 October 11:59 PM AEDT. Download the registration form below and return it to
