Latest update: 23rd June
The SALtech session for June has now been postponed.

The other booking in the Map Library may disappear as suddenly as it appeared, or another may trump it ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
Keep an eye on the blog if you want to know what’s happening. An email will be sent out to SEES in the week before the next SALtech session for those who are members of the School.

I don’t have access to a 3D printer 😦
But! The image above is a model of Wollongong I created using TouchTerrain and the TouchTerrain for CAGEO viewing tool 😀

The first session of 2017 will be
