Holiday Camp

Ocean Imagineer Hackathon Holiday Camps


Participants may come into contact with collected rainwater when sailing prototype ships.  

In the event of light rain, ponchos will be provided to participants.  

Please kindly inform the facilitators if you would prefer to opt out of any of these activities. In the event of heavy thunderstorms, outdoor activities will be postponed or cancelled.

Become an environmentally conscious inventor and build sea vessels of the future in our very own “fabrication lab” this school holiday!

Join ArtScientist-In-Residence Cesar Jung-Harada and be part of a growing community of art and science inventor-entrepreneurs as you uncover the power of your creativity to design vehicles and machines aimed at solving our climate crisis. From conceptualisation to fabrication, learn the process and hands-on skills to bring your imagination from mind to paper to working model. Participants will “graduate” having had the chance to transform everyday materials–with the addition of modular technology–into their very own versions of Cesar’s pioneering inventions.

Each 3-day hackathon holiday camp will draw from one of Cesar’s ongoing projects.
