PhoneLabs provides internships and work placement opportunities for motivated graduates and undergraduates who value start-up experience with rich learning opportunities. Previous interns have made outstanding contributions in developing our web pass and 3D printed kits. Our apps and 3D printed kits are being used by schools and universities globally.
PhoneLabs has been chosen as the start-up of the year for SA by the Australian Information Industry Association in recognition of the cutting edge nature of our venture and its potential to transform education globally. We are also working with Google to inspire the next generation of scientists and makers.
