The Hawkesbury Precinct Agricultural Education Committee is excited to launch The 2021 Australian Natural Fibres Hackathon!

Partnering with Cotton Australia, Australian Wool Innovation, Adobe and media partners with VOGUE Australia, the Hackathon brings together agricultural, business, science, fashion, textiles, design, supply chain, robotics, 3D printing and technology students across various secondary high schools, TAFE NSW and Western Sydney University.

It is designed for students to break out of narrow constraints, get inspired, explore, ideate, create and use it to improve end user experiences and elevate the way people use Australia’s Natural Fibres in an environmentally and sustainable way. This will then potentially in turn lead to new products inspired by the youth of Australia for Australia.
