We have a winner! Our 3D-printed heart has been won and delivered to Isaac (age 9) today.
The World Science Festival Brisbane: Street Science was a huge success – thousands of people were entertained by talks from famous science communicators and they enjoyed participating in activities hosted by well-known science/technology organisations.
The Human Bionics Student Association‘s #BionicMe was one of the most popular stalls during the weekend of March 12-13, 2016. Our members and volunteers showcased and provided information on bionic devices, as well as basic human anatomy. Members of the UQ Robotics Club: Prosthetic Arm Project also came along and demonstrated their latest work.
#BionicMe held a colouring-in competition for children to win a small 3D-printed heart. The winner is randomly drawn from all entries and will be announced soon! We also had bionic face-painting and a photo stand-in board.
The Human Bionics Student Association designed and distributed gold temporary “bionic skin” tattoos throughout the weekend. In fact, we received many emails asking where to obtain these tattoos. To our fans, we will hopefully distribute/sell them at our next events!
We owe our success to many people and organisations. Thank you to World Science Festival Brisbane for this amazing opportunity! Thank you to Hear and Say, Asia-Pacific Centre for Neuromodulation, Helping Hands, and Innovative Cardiovascular Engineering and Technology Lab for lending us your bionic devices!
We proudly invite you to the World Science Festival Brisbane Street Science!
This is a free, two-day extravaganza where everyone can explore the fun of science in a non-stop, action packed program. Join the Facebook event page and help spread the word!

We have some exciting news!
The World Science Festival (WSF) will take place in Brisbane from March 9 to March 13, 2016! This festival will invite some of the world’s greatest thought leaders to Queensland, showcase local scientists and performers from around the Asia Pacific region, and host the brightest and the best from previous events in New York.
The Human Bionics Student Association will be participating in the WSF Street Science! So watch this space!
Dr Dornan initiated the Human-Bionics Interface Frontiers, and played a key role in the world-first cochlear implant MEG brain scanner study in collaboration with Macquarie University, Australian Research Council Centre of Excellence, and Cochlear Ltd.
More than 100 health entrepreneurs will spend 54 hours formulating and pitching a new health related business. If you have a desire and an idea about how we can improve health, then this event is a great way for you to concentrate on that idea, and have it transformed into a real concept through collaboration and mentor support.
Hosted at the Translational Research Institute, this event runs from March 11 to 13, 2016. Registration allows you full participation for the weekend including pitching, mentoring, food, use of facilities and networking.
