Technology Showcase

Technology Showcase

On Friday 25 October, 18 Darwin High School Information Technology students visited a technology showcase at Fannie bay. 

Students experienced Australian exhibitors’ latest cutting-edge innovations and had the opportunity to discuss with technology experts how their next-generation technologies can be used in everyday life.

Some popular exhibitions were Virtual Reality (VR) spray painting and welding. Students enjoyed painting a car and welding metals in a computer generated three dimensional environments. As both of these machines provided detailed feedback and scores, it quickly became a competition among students and their teacher.

Other exhibitions included 3D metal printing and Augmented Reality (AR). The hands-on experiences appealed to the students curiosity and led to a discussion about how those examples of technology would shape our society in the future.
