The contribution theoretically explores intersections between approaches of queer theories and the theory of education for innovativeness. It does this by focusing the potentials and limitations of “trouble making” as a starting point in innovativeness education in Austrias secondary education sector. I argue that trouble making as a queer and feminist inspired approach fosters innovativeness. My major research strategies are exemplifying case studies by using data from a queer mapping project and qualitative interviews. Generally the contribution discusses im/possibilities of queer inspired approaches focussing on trouble making within education for innovativeness.
