Upcoming Event

Hologram Printing Competition with 3D Printing

TIME: 9:00am

WHEN: 19 August, 2023

LOCATION: University of Western Australia



Come and join us at the University of Western Australia for a Hologram Printing competition and your chance to win a $150 prize! The hologram printing competition is an exciting and engaging event that combines creativity and technology to create personalised holograms.

Participants of all ages will have the opportunity to use desktop hologram printing kits and 3D printers to design and print their own unique holograms. But this competition is not just about having fun – it’s also an excellent chance to learn about scientific concepts in a memorable and interesting way.

There are two sessions over the day: 9am -12pm and 1pm – 4pm (AWST)
Location: UWA, EZONE North
25 Fairway, Crawley WA 6009, Australia

Interested in making your own 3D print? You’ll need to BYO computer and pre-install Ultimaker Cura (for Windows, Mac or Linux) & run Tinkercad (online 3D software, no download required).

With the guidance of our photonics experts, explore the fundamental properties of light, including wave-particle duality, diffraction, and interference – all crucial to creating holograms. Join us to gain an understanding of how engineering and technology contribute to producing high-quality holograms and have some hands-on fun creating your very own.
