Modular Photonics, a spin out from Macquarie University, is a young, B2B company manufacturing glass-microchip devices that increase data transmission rates and reach in legacy public and enterprise multimode fibre networks. Our award winning plug-and-play products install in one hour, enabling 1 to 40G data rates at less than 75% of the cost to re-cable to single mode fibre.
The underlying technology base was originally developed at Macquarie University to solve the very real problem of integrating object-based learning into online education. Pedestal 3D now operates as a wholly independent entity after successfully spinning out from Macquarie University with assistance from the Office of Commercialisation and Innovation.
Spectrum Academic Mentoring (SAM) is an evidence-based approach to mentoring that empowers mentees to choose their mentors and the type of mentoring relationship, whether it is one-on-one or group. Working in partnership or as a group, mentees set the goals, timeframes and parameters for how the relationship will work.
Our mentoring guide identifies key skills for mentees and mentors and provides an easy step-by-step process for both mentees and mentors, including checklists and reflection exercises.
Blast off into the world of science in a fun, safe environment. Is your child ready to experiment, ask questions, wonder, investigate and - maybe - get a little messy? They'll do all this and more as they explore science, technology, engineering and maths (STEM) concepts through fun, hands-on activities.
Developed by experts and delivered by experienced teachers, the program is aligned with the NSW Science and Technology Syllabus and the Early Years Learning Framework. Classes are relevant and age-appropriate, including smaller classes for younger children, and more challenging content for older ones.
Established in 2001 as a spin-off from Macquarie University, MicroBioGen is a world-leading biotechnology company with global success in the development of industrial yeast biocatalysts. MicroBioGen has developed a platform technology that enables us to upgrade the industrial capabilities of the world’s most utilised microorganism – Saccharomyces cerevisiae. This yeast underpins over US$1 trillion in products per year including biofuels, bread, wine, spirits, animal feed, biochemicals etc.
MicroBioGen is successfully partnered with the international biotech company Novozymes, and our yeast products - used for the Novozymes Innova series - are quickly becoming the global industry standard to produce a range of first-generation biofuels.
The Australian Federal Government awarded MicroBioGen with a $4 million grant through the Australian Renewable Energy Agency (ARENA) to optimise a yeast for food and fuel production. MicroBioGen has won numerous awards, such as a Macquarie University Award for Commercial Innovation and an Australian Export Award.
