Ihanaa ja tunnelmallista joulun odotusta kaikille! 🤶🎅Monien keittiöissä tuoksuvat nyt ihanat jouluruuat ja lahjapaketteja kääritään. Jätettä syntyy silloin tavallista enemmän. Tässä ovat bioinssien vinkit vastuulliseen joulunviettoon (ja sen jälkeiseen aikaan):

1. Osta ja valmista vain ruokia, joista sinä tai perheesi pitävät. Annoskoko on noin 400 g / hlö ja jokaisella aterialla ei ole pakko olla tarjolla jokaista sorttia. Voit suunnitella mahdollisen hävikkiruuan hyödyntäminen jo kaupassa ostoksia tehdessäsi.

2. Pakkaa kinkun paistamisessa syntyvä rasva tyhjään maitotölkkiin ja toimita lähimpään Kinkkutempun kierrätyspisteeseen, joiden sijainnit löydät osoitteesta https://www.kinkkutemppu.com/

3. Lahjapaperit ja -narut kuuluvat sekajätteeseen. Lelulaatikot ja konvehtirasiat menevät kartonkikeräykseen. Jos kartonkiroskis on tupaten täysi (kuten aina jouluisin), odota seuraavaa tyhjennystä ja vie jätteet vasta sen jälkeen.

4. Jos ruokahävikkiä kuitenkin syntyy, vie se kompostiin tai lajittele biojätteeseen, jolloin siitä voidaan jalostaa multaa tai biokaasua.

5. Joulun jälkeen kuusen voi polttaa tai hakettaa ja kompostoida hakkeena. Taloyhtiöistä kuuset kerätään biojätteenä. Kuusen voi kaataa lakanan päälle ja kietaista pussiksi, jolloin neulaset eivät leviä.

Näillä ohjeilla hiljennymme joulunviettoon. Toivottavasti Pukki tuo bioinssille lahjaksi esimerkiksi mikro-ohjaimen, jolloin pääsemme heti vuoden alusta taas mielenkiintoisten projektien pariin 🤞
...

Osana opiskelua on myös yhteistyö alueen yritysten ja toimijoiden kanssa. Ensimmäisen vuosikurssin biotalouden opiskelijat toteuttivat kolme erilaista 360-ympäristöä Forssan ammatti-instituutille (FAI) osana e-biotalous moduulia. 360-ympäristö mahdollistaa ammatti-instituutin opiskelijoiden tutustumisen heidän käytössä oleviin tiloihin turvallisesti etukäteen. Ympäristössä liikutaan erilaisten kuvakkeiden avulla ja siihen on liitetty lisäinfoa laitteista ja välineistä joko videoiden ja/tai tekstien avulla. Biotalouden opiskelijat pääsivät harjoittelemaan mm. asiakkaan kanssa toimimista, projektisuunnittelua ja olemista osana projektitiimiä. Valokuvaamista, videokuvaamista sekä 360-ympäristön luomista. Opiskelujen aikana asiakkaille tehtävät harjoitustyöt antavat kokemusta tulevaa työelämää varten. Vastavuoroisesti yritykselle opiskelijoiden kanssa tehty työ tuo mainosta ja mahdollisuuden tutustua tuleviin ammattilaisiin ensimmäisten joukossa. Olisiko sinulla tai edustamallasi yrityksellä jotain mitä me voitas opiskelijatyönä tehdä? 😊

Meiltä bioinsseiltä kysytään usein, että miksi haettiin alalle ja mitä me käytännössä sitten tehdään. Tässä pieni maistiainen siitä. ...

Hei! Olen Anne, toisen vuoden biotalouden monimuoto-opiskelija. Halusin kertoa, että näihin opintoihin lähteminen on ollut yksi elämäni parhaista päätöksistä! Olen tavannut paljon kaiken ikäisiä ja erilaisista taustoista tulevia mielenkiintoisia, taitavia, hauskoja ja innovatiivisia ihmisiä. Tällä viikolla pääsin aloittamaan kiinnostavan työharjoittelun @fmhaus :lla mm. tavarantoimittajien ympäristöauditoinnin parissa. Siellä oli vastassa taas uusi ja upea yhteisö, joka otti minut lämpimästi vastaan, kuten kuvasta näkyy 🥰 #bioinssit #biotaloudeninsinööri #forssa #hamk #fmhaus #tilaatulevaisuudelle ...

Tämä tässä on @b_inssi , robotti, joka päätti muuttaa elämänsä suunnan! B.Inssi on saapunut luoksemme tulevaisuudesta, joka oli hänen kohdallaan varsin synkkä paikka. Tulevaisuudessa maapallomme on melkoisissa vaikeuksissa resurssipulan ja ilmastonmuutoksen takia, ja ystäväämme B.Inssiä säälitti kotiplaneettansa kurja tila. Toki häntä harmitti myös oma työttömyytensä.

B.Inssi makasi sohvallaan päivät pitkät ja katseli kadehtien tulevaisuuden sankareita, biotalousinsinöörejä, jotka innovaatioillaan ja ajanmukaisella toiminnallaan auttoivat maapalloa paranemaan hiukan joka päivä. Juuri sellainen B.Inssi halusi olla. Hän rohkaisi mielensä, täytti yhteishakupaperit ja piti itselleen peukkua. Turhaan, sillä tulevaisuudessa biotalousinsinöörin koulutukseen oli aivan mielettömän vaikea päästä johtuen ihmiskunnan suuresta arvostuksesta tuota tarunhohtoista koulutushaaraa kohtaan! B.Inssi on kuitenkin neuvokas kaveri, ja päättikin hakea opiskelemaan vuoteen 2020, jolloin koulukseen oli vielä mahdollista päästä hänenkin papereillaan.

Nyt B.Inssi on saanut päätökseen pitkän matkansa tulevaisuudesta nykypäivän Forssaan, ja on syystäkin varsin jännittynyt. Vastassa on uusi kaupunki ilman yhtään tuttua kasvoa, ja vieläpä täysin eri ajassa! Onneksi B.Inssillä on apunaan HAMK:n ystävällinen ja osaava henkilökunta ja innokkaat tuutorit, jotka auttavat häntä kotiutumaan ja ottamaan kaiken irti tästä ainutlaatuisesta koulutusohjelmasta.

Seuraa B.Inssin matkaa tulevaisuuden sankariksi Instagramissa @b_inssi

HAMK Design Factoryn PDP-opintojaksolla opiskelijat ovat kovassa työntouhussa ja Halfway Galassa näimme jo ensimmäisiä opiskelijatiimien prototyyppejä. Esittelyssä on jälleen myös yksi projekteista!HAMK Design Factory on palannut täyteen työntekoon ja takana on PDP:n Halfway gala, jossa opiskelijat esittelivät tämän hetkisiä tuotoksiaan. Tällä viikolla keskityttiin arvon luomiseen tuotteelle tai palvelulle ja kuinka perustella oma idea.

Tällä viikolla esittelemme Iittalan Lasimäen pop-up ryhmän, jossa kolme kestävän kehityksen ja kolme hevosalan liiketoiminnan opiskelijaa kehittävät liikuteltavaa myyntikojua. Tiimi on ottanut selvää erilaisista olemassa olevista malleista sekä esimerkiksi ajokorttiluokituksista. Ideoinnissa tulee ottaa huomioon esimerkiksi energiankulutus, lämmitys, kalusteet, liikuteltavuus ja tilankäyttö. Tiimi rakensi paperi- ja pahvipohjaisen prototyypin tuodakseen ideoita näkyväksi. Innolla odotamme millaisen ratkaisun näemme Final Galassa!
