The Campus Ball of the Danube University Krems took place on 15 June 2019. In addition to the usual catering stands, there was also a science stand where we were allowed to present our projects.
Besides 3D printers and a laser cutter, our main presentation was a self-made and self-developed pancake printer. What can you imagine? In principle a 3D printer that uses pancake dough instead of plastic filament and “prints” figures drawn by visitors. A conventional heating plate serves as a base, on which the individually designed pancakes are then baked.
We also distributed flies, which we printed with our 3D printers. The visitors were then able to wear them on site and stand out from the crowd.
Another presentation was a laser cutter with which we engraved soft biscuits with logos and pictures and then distributed them again for consumption.
In addition, we were allowed to represent the Lower Austrian government, Department of Science and Research, and its talent promotion program, the Science Academy. The latter is a course offering in five different subject areas, covering a total of four semesters. Young people aged between 14 and 17 can further develop their skills in this field and deepen their knowledge in the field of science.
We are pleased to have been able to present and represent our projects and the Science Academy at this year’s Campus Ball.
