On Saturday the 14th August, we invite you to join us as we celebrate the opening weekend of National Science Week with a fun and interactive STEM with Style Fashiontech Workshop for teens.

Let your imagination run wild with creativity as you learn hand sewing techniques and the basics of electronics to bring to life your own unique luminescent outfit.

These three hour workshops provide an introduction to fashiontech for 13-16 year olds interested in experimenting with wearable technology and designing the future of fashion. No previous experience required.

We will be delivering two sessions on SATURDAY 14th AUGUST at HOTA:

» 9am – 12pm
» 1pm – 4pm

The workshops are FREE and proudly supported by the HOTA, Gold Coast Innovation Hub and Inspiring Australia and run by Startup Apprentice.

Each participant will receive:

Interested in a STEM with Style workshop for your school or organisation?

We create fun and interactive workshops designed to introduce 13 - 16 yr olds to the future of fashion, through upcycling clothing with wearable tech and LED lights.

By combining traditional crafts with new technology we remove the divide between ‘creativity’ and ‘engineering’. Despite the fact that most traditional crafts enjoyed by many women and girls like embroidery, jewellery making, knitting, sewing and crochet require very similar skills to those required by engineers, there is still a perception that hardware, software and product engineering is masculine.

Through the Fashiontech Workshop Series we are able to draw parallels between the fashion industry and engineering with the shared need to design and follow accurate patterns, analyse and test materials for their appropriate use and the economic considerations associated with the garments that are produced.

Get in touch with us today to discuss our workshop options and help us put the future of fashion into the hands of our kids.
