MAKER2MARKET ™ school holiday program in Canberra.  

Our Maker2Market™ holiday program is for young people (aged 10-17) who are creative, love making things, have probably been tinkering for a while and have the aspiration to start their own business.

This taster program builds life skills and develops crucial 21st-century skills and entrepreneurial mindset through a real-world, intensive business life cycle experience.

Over three days participants explore their passion, create a business and test the value of their products and inventions with real customers – learning and developing a range of skills:

  • Problem-solving and key business concepts
  • Identify an ideal customer
  • Steps to take a product to market including prototyping and creating a product from scratch
  • Logo creation using online software
  • Pitching, critique and market research skills and experience
  • Creating up to 20 products to take to market day through an intensive Maker session.
  • Developing a product costing and honing financial literacy skills
  • Developing merchandising and customer sales skills
  • Participating in a real market day experience to test products with real customers at Old Bus Depot Markets.

Cost of three-day program: $220 ( incl GST)

+ BYO your own materials or choose a materials package when completing the enrolment form so your young person has materials when developing their prototype and desired products/product range for market day.

Upon completion of the Maker2Market program, participants will also receive:

  • Invitations to attend market days throughout the year – continue to test skills and products.
  • Discounts and invitations to edii events and workshops for the next 12 calendar months
