ECU Joondalup open day: a fresh angle on higher education promised

VISITORS to ECU Joondalup’s open day on Sunday, July 17 are being promised a fresh angle on higher education and themselves.

They can get a profile picture taken in the 180 degree video booth.

The booth uses 36 synchronised DSLR cameras, triggered at the same time, to capture a person’s pose resulting in The Matrix ‘bullet time’ effect that gives the impression of a 3D picture.

With the option to go solo or in groups of four, visitors can get the image emailed or uploaded straight to a favourite social media channel.

Other free attractions include:

– Mind reading: Visitors wear headsets that monitor brain activity and are then shown information about courses. The headsets detect which generate the most beta waves, which suggest alertness or interest.

– New courses: Learn about new offerings for 2017, including the Bachelor of Engineering (Petroleum Engineering) Honours, Master of Science (Assisted Reproductive Technology) and Master of Nursing (Graduate Entry) courses.

– Zorb rollers: Try out the giant inflatable balls on the campus lake.

There will be MiLi Markets, featuring arts, crafts and vintage design stalls, food trucks, including the Australian launch of the Hamdog, as seen on the ‘Shark Tank.

There will also be iPads given away and an AFL handball competition.

The ECU Joondalup open day is on Sunday, July 17 from 10am to 3pm.

The Mt Lawley campus will hold an open day on August 14 and the South West campus on August 28.
