KickstART: BIO + STEAM =

This event has passed!

This is an exciting arts-science hybrid workshop series hosted at the Scitech CSIRO Lab, designed for creative and curious 12-26 year olds who are interested in exploring both disciplines. These free workshops are proudly presented by Propel Youth Arts WA and Scitech, as part of the 2017 KickstART Festival. Workshop topics include: •Botanical Crafting – create your own kokedama which will displayed as part of the Refugium (WA) art installation on KickstART Festival Day.

  • •Small Scale Visions – put swamp life under the microscope and create images which will allow you to explore the natural pairing of audio and visuals, using natural soundscapes.
  • •Generous Listening: Creating Soundscapes from Nature – Create soundscapes by sampling native fauna and insects, and using hydrophones to play water like an instrument.
  • •Water Futures – learn how to build your own system to distil fresh water while exploring how to create a sustainable water future.
  • •Solar Beam: learn how to live “off-grid” by creating a basic solar engine circuit from scratch! •Creative DNA Extraction – extract your own DNA (100% safely) and use it to make music with the iDNAtity app.
  • •Sound Garden: Interactive Sonic Installation – if plants could talk what sounds would they make? Find out by using organic and recycled materials to create touchpads for an audible garden installation.

*All workshops are FREE for 12-26 year olds but places must be booked on our website at: http://www.propel.org.au/2017-kickstart-festival/?tag=BIO+%2B+STEAM+%3D
