This expanded clothing range will include innovative designs for female and male riders in urban environments. Prior to attending the Tech School, students undertake data analysis using TAC fatality data , view Australian artist Piccinni’s perception of what we might look like if built to survive a crash and conduct safety rating assessments of materials through the MotoCAP testing laboratory.
Students will design their own protective garments, calculating abrasion resistance from data provided by IFM on a range of material samples. At the conclusion of the program, students will evaluate their design against innovation, safety, comfort and cost criteria.
- Follow scientific protocols
- Collaborate effectively to create Solutions to identified problems
- Consider a range of technologies and specialist equipment
