This free trial will give you a taste of the Hack in a Box program!

Hack in a Box is Australia’s first schools' program that gets students solving real world challenges from Australia’s biggest companies. During the program, students are taught a set of innovation tools that are based on the latest research into what has been scientifically proven to boost creative and critical thinking skills.

The program involves students working closely in groups, through a series of six in-classroom sessions, that can be tailored to fit any subject or extra curricular activity.

Students walk away with a scientifically proven innovation methodology that can be applied in any subject, in their personal life and beyond, to help solve any challenges they need to think creatively about. The skills learnt will ensure students are ready for the jobs of the future, where the ability to think critically and creatively is a must-have for employers.

Hack in a Box was designed by Organisational Psychologists and other science geeks at Inventium, Australia’s leading innovation consultancy. Inventium's methodology has been scientifically proven to drive innovation, and has been taught to leading organisations all over the world, such as Google, Disney, LEGO, and many others.

This toolkit contains everything you need to be able to run the full Hack in a Box program in your classroom. It includes detailed session outlines, handouts and student videos.
