The Something School

As creators of the digital economy it is our responsibility to nurture the young people who will shape tomorrow’s digital ecosystem.


Delivered in partnership with BOP Industries and aimed at inspiring and empowering high school students, the Something School was designed to show young people how they could make a difference in their communities and around the world.


With activities ranging from designing jobs of the future to exploring how digital solved some of today’s greatest challenges, the Something School promised to give students the opportunity to think big, explore out-of-the-box challenges, and connect with like-minded industry leaders.

Throughout the day, we also featured a number of keynote speakers and panelists as they talked about their careers in digital and the opportunities and challenges they encountered throughout their careers. With a diverse range of speakers from across the digital community, students had the opportunity to explore a number of different areas in the digital industry.


The Something School was open for high school students from across South East Queensland, and we couldn’t wait to see your students there.
