Wednesday was an amazing day and we are still buzzing with the excitement of engaging with the impressive youth of Frankston and The Mornington Peninsula. The ideas and speakers blew us away with their passion, ingenuity and willingness to create change.
As well as having amazingly talented speakers and delegates, we were lucky enough to have April Seymore along to share her amazing doodles and sketches based on the ideas of our speakers. Here is a sneak peak of some of the sketches made on the day. We cant wait to get our hands on the other sketches.

You can print pretty much anything you want with a 3D printer. In fact we actually printed out the letters for our event! All they need now is a good lick of paint and they will be ready to go.
The best thing about 3D printing is that you don’t have to wait until you have a printer to be a part of it. Our speaker Bernard Meade will share his ideas on how you can become involved in the 3D printing phenomenon at our event on Wednesday. To find out more about Bernard read his bio HERE.
