A recent visit by Member for Boothby, Louise Miller-Frost, gave staff and students at Flinders University’s Tonsley campus the opportunity to showcase cutting-edge research and innovations being undertaken on campus.
Professor Alistair Rendell, Vice-President and Executive Dean for the College of Science and Engineering, hosted the short tour, which saw Ms Miller-Frost meet with Professor Giselle Rampersad, Director of the Diploma of Digital Technologies (DDT). Professor Rampersad shared knowledge about the award-winning DDT, and introduced Ms Miller-Frost to school teachers currently enrolled in the course.
Ms Miller-Frost was then treated to an eye-opening experience, as she jumped in the drivers seat of the Flinders Solar Car to see the view point of students who will be competing in the Solar Car Challenge next year.
Ms Miller-Frost also met with Professor Karen Reynolds and Stephen Blakeney, from the Medical Device Partnering Program (MDPP) and Medical Device Research Institute (MDRI), and Associate Professor John Costi from the Surgical Skills Lab, to learn about their innovative research, development activities and plans for the future.
