SimAust CEO Update - SimulationWeek Begins On Monday

SimAust CEO Update - SimulationWeek Begins On Monday | Simulated Learning Environments | Scoop.it
We are counting down the hours to our favourite time of the year!
 
It's only 2 days until SimulationWeek begins.

This year SimWeek runs from Monday 2 May until Sunday 8 May. The week is a brilliant chance to promote all forms of simulation across our entire community, in our organisations, our institutions, our start-ups, our departments, our schools, our Universities and even our homes. It’s time to celebrate all things Sim, the wonderful accomplishments and our incredibly bright future.

You can find SimWeek online at www.simulationweek.com and it is open to anyone to highlight their own innovative work through a news story, video or combined image and simulation message format. Pictures are critical to conveying the messages so don’t leave them out! The site is linked through to all of our social media platforms so your messages will have a vast audience.

Information and examples on how to contribute online can be found by clicking here. 

There are fantastic interactive opportunities to contribute to SimWeek offline too, nothing like a live simulation to generate some interest!
 
There are various SimWeek 2016 events that can be attended by the general public. 

The Health Education and Training Institute, in partnership with the Southern NSW Local Health District, will be celebrating SimulationWeek with the staff of Batemans Bay Hospital and the local emergency services (Fire, Police, Ambulance and SES) with a sausage sizzle and open day of the Sister Alison Bush AO Mobile Simulation Centre. This SimWeek event will be on Tuesday 3 May at Batemans Bay Hospital from 10:00am until 2.00pm. 

On Wednesday 4 May, the Flinders University Hexapod will be doing a demonstration at 3:00pm until 4.00pm, The Flinders Hexapod is a testing facility that is based on a Stewart-Gough platform (the mechanism that is used to produce the motion in a flight simulator). The test machine is able to simulate complex motion and measure the effect that motion has on various structures and/or people. There are a large number of research projects that are planned for the facility, which include the building, maritime, and aerospace industries.

Don’t miss out on SimWeek this year.

Interested in hosting an event of your own? Click here for suggestions and information on how to become involved.  

If you would like your story “up in lights”, email it to simulationweek@simaust.com so we can make you and Simulation a Star. 

Have a fantastic SimWeek!
