- Year 9 Student
'I learnt that I really enjoy creating original ideas and making them happen. Previously, I wasn't aware of my interest in inventing things. Life is so busy with other things a lot of the time, you never got to discover the other strange things that you're passionate about. Finding out that I'm passionate about creating new ideas and concepts for the benefit of those in need made me question what sort of career I may have been thinking about. I absolutely loved this project.'
“CIC provided the expertise, structure and support we needed to create an authentic, real world learning experience that increased our students’ sense of agency, both as learners and as change-makers. Our world needs more young people with crazy good ideas and CIC understands how to work with schools to make that happen.”
- Mim Glasby, STEM Program Facilitator
'Bringing CIC on board in 2020 to offer Geelong Tech School Ambassadors the Social Innovators program was a terrific experience for my students and myself as their program facilitator. The staff were professional and well-organised. Activities were well designed, engaging and thoughtfully delivered. My students were positively supported and their ideas given scope and structure to flourish. Overall a wonderful program for high school students to connect with their communities and issues that they care about.'
“I took part of the Social Innovators program in 2020 and it has been one of the most beneficial programs of my life. It was nice to take a step up in the community for once, and the support Crazy Idea’s College gave us was awesome, the program was easy to follow and well thought out and the team were always happy to help. It taught me leadership, organisation and creative skills that I will never forget.”
'My Year 11 and Year 12 students undertook the Social Innovators program in 2020. The program was well scaffolded and provided resources to help ‘step’ students through key ideas, concepts and processes. The team at Crazy Ideas College supported the students through online meetings and were only ever an email away for help. Community engagement meant the students were held responsible for their own learning.'
