Brighton Secondary School meets the Adelaide University Entrepreneur Club
Students from Brighton Secondary School had a brief sea change on Thursday 18 March; exploring the North Terrace campus and participating in some tutorial-style workshops.
The year 9 students learned about our research and teaching strengths from across the University of Adelaide's five faculties. At the Faculty of the Professions, students were challenged to build the tallest tower with minimal supplies. The competition bought out some friendly rivalries amongst the students, and was judged by the Adelaide University Entrepreneur Club and Dan Ryan from Stone & Chalk.
Bachelor of Commerce student, Elena Davis and Master of Innovation and Entrepreneurship student, Sagar Menon mentored the students as they progressed through the challenge. Elena and Sagar also shared insights with Brighton Secondary School on how to start up their club and what they loved most about innovation, entrepreneurship and the design thinking process.
"It was a deceptively simple challenge requiring teamwork, time management skills, creativity, and self control: build a tower out of spaghetti, string, and tape that can hold up a marshmallow - the winning team had a tower 47cm tall!"
