The Bendigo Unboxy Design Challenge is back!



WINNER Innovative Education Initiative

2021 Association for Learning Environments Awards

  LEA Branding

In 2021, Bendigo Tech School is again partnering with Unboxy to challenge Bendigo Schools to submit innovative projects using the Unboxy modular cardboard construction system.

If you’re in Years 4-10 we want to challenge you to utilise Unboxy Kits in wonderful ways, to compete in any or all of three Categories – Engineering, Visual Arts or Architectural Design. 

Form a team, develop your ideas and start creating. You could win big prizes for your school. 

Supported by Bendigo Tech School and Y2 Architecture, the Bendigo Schools Unboxy Challenge is open to all schools within a 30km radius of Bendigo. Every participating school will receive two free Unboxy kits.
