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.

The Something School will gives high school students from across Brisbane the opportunity to join us for an immersive and inspirational day focused on all things digital and innovation.

Why this is important

The future of work is changing faster now than ever before. With the latest reports finding that Gen Z are likely to change careers every seven years, it is essential that we prepare them with the 21st century skills necessary to thrive in the workforce of the future.

We are only just over half way through the year and 2020 has already become the year that no-one will ever forget. In addition to a global pandemic that has ground our economy to a halt, we have endured fires and floods, rising global tensions, plan crashes and earthquakes. Our community has been shaken to the core.

However, if there is one thing that a year of global uncertainty has taught us, is the power of digital and the need for digital skills. Even though Gen Z are largely considered to be digital natives, we cannot make the mistake of assuming that they understand the power and importance of digital.

Which is why we are proud to present the Something School as a part of Brisbane’s Digital Innovation Festival. The immersive and inspirational day will focus on all things digital and innovation, practically showing students the opportunities that digital enables for them.
