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

Generation Z have grown up in a world different to any other generation that has come before them. Born into a world of touch screen devices and WIFI connectivity, they do not know a world without tech, earning them the title of 'Digital Natives'.

Previous generations have spent their lives pushing the boundaries of digital, developing 3D printed organs, lab grown meats and virtual assistants to automate our lives.

This generation however, the generation in school today, are going to be facing a unique challenge of their own; looking at how can we ensure that our digital lives are safe and secure, ethical and are still innately human.

'The Something School' aims to look at exactly this and more as part of Something Digital - Brisbane's Digital Festival.
