A week-long summer program will tap into the creativity and passion of young people, helping them develop a project that would “be at home in a museum or art gallery”.
The Recharge program, a collaboration between Bitlink andthe Queen Victoria Museum and Art Gallery (QVMAG), will run from January 16 to 20from Launceston College’s STEAM NGN, which is a technology facility at the college.
In creating their project, 12inspired young people of high school and college age will use and develop a range of skills.
“It’s not a project where you come along and expect to do just one thing …[it’s]a combination of a bit of woodwork, a bit of 3Dprinting, a bit of computer graphics, a bit of programming, a bit of electronics and so on,”Bitlink managing director James Riggall said.
“Creativity is a huge part of this as well so people who are interested in design, and how people experience things, and video game design, and that sort of stuff are a really good fit for the program as well as someone who is really hard into the engineering side of things,” he said.
“If we don’t get a mix of those sorts of students, we won’t come up with anything near as good as we would if we had a bit of diversity there.”
The participants will also be mentored, listen to guest speakers and attend site tours.
Grifin Brooks has completed the program before, and said it can really open doors into the industry.
“My involvement certainly didn’t stop at the end of the program,” he said.
Mr Brooks learnt a lot from the program, and it has certainly been a jumping-off pointfor him. He isn’t able to participate in this year’sprogram as he has developed to a point where he is participating in a similar national program.
