At the HEIA SA “STEM IN TEXTILES” Professional Development at Flinders at Tonsley, we saw emerging technology, textiles and how to bring it together! ✨
A huge thank you to Dr Marissa Bond, STEM Outreach Officer at Flinders University for making this possible with HEIA SA!
We experienced a taste of designing our own laser cut buttons to take home, TinkerCAD 3D designing, Virtual Reality fashion design thanks to TFE Solutions, TAFE Fashion implementing emerging tech, a tour of Flinders at Tonsley, Trotec Laser Cutters and more! Every member received a Goody Bag of samples and information, morning tea supplied by local business Three Little Pods on site! ✨
Thank you to our presenters: Flinders University, Trotec Australia, TAFE SA Fashion, TFE Solutions (virtual reality fashion design), and the companies supporting our Goody Bags: Little Bird Electronics, Genesis Creations, Spoonflower, Educators SA, Trotec Australia, HEIA SA, Flinders University, Baptist World Aid, 3dsystems and All Make Sewing Centre
Finally, thank you and congratulations to HEIA SA Executive Committee member Belinda Zanello for coordinating such a fabulous PD event! The event sold out (the 47 places) in a matter of days. If you missed out not to worry we are already looking into plans for 2020 so keep an eye out on the What's On page in the new year.
