Over the past few months, the Bendigo Tech School Ambassadors have been working with the Discovery Science and Technology Centre on a new exhibit for the floor. This exciting new exhibit will showcase Bendigo’s response to the sustainability goals and targets, as we approach 2030. It will also include our hopes for the future. Using AR (Augmented Reality) technology and 3D printing students are creating a 3D model of Bendigo’s town centre, with a futuristic Augmented overlay.
Over multiple weeks, the Ambassadors have been at the Discovery Centre brainstorming ideas in order to produce the best exhibit possible. After much discussion, we have narrowed down the focus to highlight important opportunities of the future.
Preparation for the future and ensuring the local and global environment, and its people are in safe hands is a priority for us, as Ambassadors of the Bendigo Tech School. The reason for this exhibit being created is to engage a wider audience. Connecting youth to STEAM opportunities is important to many, especially us at BTS as it can open many doors for our Ambassadors, as this opened the door to work with the Discovery Centre as well as Industry experts.
Working with the Discovery Centre has given the Ambassadors the chance to learn and explore the centre and how they can improve it in the ever changing times. We look forward to highlighting these important issues at the launch of our exhibit.
