We invite you to join us for a fun and interactive STEM with Style Fashion Tech 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 one day 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.
The workshops are proudly presented by Startup Apprentice.
Each participant will receive a STEM with Style micro fashion tech kit.

14 AUGUST 2021 – NATIONAL SCIENCE WEEK WORKSHOP @ HOTA
Fashion Tech workshops kick off National Science Week on the Gold Coast @ HOTA
On Saturday 14 August, we facilitated two x three hour workshops at HOTA, as part of opening celebrations for National Science Week 2021.
20 students aged 13-16 enjoyed learning the basics of hand-sewing and electronics to upcycle clothing by adding tech (such as LED lights).
Participants not only had a great time, but got to test their innovative and creative minds and learn how electrical circuits work to create their light-up wardrobe item.
We are proud to have supported our futuristic fashion designers in exploring this new world of fashion tech.
18 AUGUST 2021 – ONE-DAY WORKSHOP @ HILLCREST CHRISTIAN COLLEGE
Gold Coast school students try their hand at fashion tech fun
On Wednesday 18 August, Startup Apprentice hosted a one-day workshop at Hillcrest Christian College as part of National Science Week 2021.
There were smiles all-round as students in years 9-10 created light-up garments with battery operated LED circuits, hand-sewn into creative patterns.
This hands-on experiential learning workshop saw over 20 highly-engaged students expand their creative and technological skills in a practical and FUN setting.
This one-of-a-kind workshop is one they are not likely to forget any time soon.
Interested in a STEM with Style workshop for your school or organisation?
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 Fashion Tech 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.
