Students will explore different existing food packaging options and what changes can be made going forward to implement a circular economy solution. Students will experience a presentation from Bendigo Foodshare to provide real world industry links and community context.
Bendigo Tech School
Through the process of creating 3D printer filament from milk bottles, students will get hands-on experience of how they can recycle plastic into a new product. Students will then utilise the filament created along with acrylic to create label tags for Bendigo FoodShare crates. The program will provide 3D modelling and vector graphics skills which will enable students to utilise 3D printing and lasercutting for their prototypes.
