Spending the day with future tradies is what Modfab Australia love to do – and did demonstrating 3d printing courses Sydney side at the Eagle Vale High school run, Trade Skills Show of Campbelltown.
Heike and Ben from Modfab Australia were honoured to be invited to attend the first Trade Skills Show run. It was an amazing event full of shiny faces, great opportunities and good people all with the same goals in mind; to use all kinds of technology to it’s best advantage for the future. We’re itching to take our 3d printing courses Sydney and beyond New South Wales after such a warm reception!
The event was inaugurated by Robert Hecimovic who is a teacher at Eagle Vale High school, where the main workshop of the Campbelltown Trades Training Centre is located.
The centre is dedicated to equipping students with real trade skills and providing them with pathways for their future. Robert Hecimovic believes that businesses in Campbelltown could inspire students to flourish in their trades which gave rise to organising the Trade Skills Show.
The Trade Skills Show was a chance for potential employers to see students from Eagle Vale, Airds High School and Picton High School operating machines, welding and finishing all types of metals projects.
We were able to set up a display of our 3d printers and show off some of our stuff too. We talked about our 3d printing courses Sydney and beyond for student and teacher alike in a supportive, interested environment.
An ex student, Mark Perez, CEO of Breseight Engineering in Ingleburn, visited the show and related his experiences. Mark started off as a metal trades apprentice and climbed the ladder through engineering to his present position of CEO of the company.
Heike and Ben chatted to many visitors and intrigued students alike. We scanned the Principal and one of the star students as well.
It was an excellent day and we certainly hope to return next year. Many thanks to Robert and all the staff at Eagle Vale High who made us all feel very welcome.
