    This is a recording from a 2022 Online Teach Meet , which was a partnership between DATTA Vic and the NGV. It explored how myco-cycling can tackle the problem of plastic waste - and how it's happening right here in Melbourne! 

    We were joined by Amanda Morgan, founder and Head of Research and Development at the multi-award-winning Fungi Solutions, who shared how their work with this amazing natural organism diverts resources from landfill to sequester carbon, creates new materials and generates economic opportunities.

    With an extensive background in prototyping, Amanda now works closely with clients at Fungi Solutions to develop refined mycelium solutions for their products. She brings expertise in innovative social and environmental programs and an enthusiasm for helping others to get involved with cultivating fungi. With initial focus on the development of a targeted recycling program, using the material by-product from the process as circular packaging, Amanda has developed a range of targeted mycelium strains for the remediation of pollutants and the production of Mycomaterials (alternatives to single use plastics, animal by-products and timber milled products). 

    A great way to explore the concepts of sustainable and ethical design, professional practice, preferred futures, materials science and technologies in society.

    This is a recording of an online information session delivered in September 2022. Bio-Inspired Textiles is a UK-based research project that explores how combining biology, material science and textile design can enhance sustainable and circular practice. Thanks to Professor Veronika Kapsali for giving us permission to share her work.

    The Creative Futures Annual Design Workshop is a teacher education program delivered in partnership between Melbourne Museum and DATTA Vic and funded by Creative Futures.

    Each year, teachers come together for a unique professional learning experience on using museum collections and design thinking practices to enrich schools-based design education.

    They also contribute to the development of new Design & Technologies classroom resources based on museum collections.

    In 2021, the group helped to develop Community Connections, a project which will engage your students - individually or collaboratively - in exploring their own community connections through designing and creating a digital product that can be shared with others. This resource offers a specific opportunity to explore Indigenous culture and gives guidance on how to engage with First Nations’ design through the recently published Australian Indigenous Design Charter.

    This resources consists of three elements:

    Station Ideation was developed as a student design challenge for Years 5/6 and 7/8 which uses Minecraft: Education Edition to contribute to the design of the new Town Hall station. The competition is over, but you can still use the resources in your class to teach user-centered design. On their journey through the station, the Metro Tunnel design team invite your students to join them in transforming a space to meet the needs of all future passengers.
