About Taj Pabari
Taj Pabari is a seventeen-year-old inventor, social entrepreneur and educational pioneer passionate about inspiring children discover and embrace the world of creativity through technology and innovation.
In late 2014, Taj founded a social enterprise called, Fiftysix Creations, a build-it-yourself tablet and creativity kit for kids. As easy as a puzzle, as fun as a computer game. The organisation also runs workshops in schools helping ignite the creative spark in all students, regardless of age, demographic or knowledge base. Fiftysix Creations is now affiliated with over one hundred schools and together with partners, have educated over 95,000 students internationally.
Taj was the Winner of The Australian Young Innovator of the Year for 2014 and is the 2017 Queensland Young Australian of the Year.
This event is supported by the Australian Government and the Western Australia Coordinating Committee for National Science Week 2017 and has been enabled thanks to a partnership with WesCEF.
