Aviation Teen Start-Up is an engaging, hands-on idea competition for 11 to 16 year olds, run during the July school holidays. With a focus on aviation and aerospace innovation, it encourages students to invent, explore and experiment, and let their ideas take flight!

Over two days, students are taken through the innovation development process from idea to execution. Students work individually or in teams to come up with an idea for a product or service that they believe provides a solution to a problem facing the aviation industry now or in the future. The event concludes with the students pitching their concepts to a panel of judges.

There will also be behind-the-scenes tours of Canberra Airport and fun, interactive activities that teach skills like creativity, problem-solving and critical thinking.

The students not only get a hands-on experience but will have the opportunity to meet and talk to a variety of people working at the Airport and engaged in the aviation and aerospace industry.
