TEDx selects PPC Researcher


Ata Sina, PPC researcher and current master’s student in Mechanical Engineering, has been selected as one of the speakers at this year’s TEDx RenfrewCollingwood Talks.  The 2014 theme is “Rock, Paper, Scissors”.  The talks will present a diversa range of speakers who will relate to these topics in serious, fun and cutting-edge ways.  Ata will be speaking on his “Origami Engineering”, a novel method of creating complex self-folding 3-D paper products that have a potential to serve as a new, sustainable material for product design.

Acting as a hub of energy and inspiration, TEDx RenfrewCollingwood is a day-long event that brings together creators, catalysts, designers and thinkers to share their ideas worth spreading on the TEDx stage. A day of listening that invites thought, discussion and play, the TEDx Talks are interspersed with activities, performances, and food worth eating.

“It has been designed not only to share the ideas of some pretty amazing Vancouverites with the audience, locally and globally, but to continue to introduce the city to our community and to encourage people to come and see what this vibrant neighbourhood is all about,” said organizer Niki Dun.
