Educating for the Future
Empowering createneers to imagine and build a flourishing future for all.
Createneering is Michaella's most recent venture. She is bringing her wealth of knowledge in the arts, design and engineering to education, developing courses that introduce technology learning playfully through the arts. Encouraging students to become Createneers, individuals that use technology as tools to create instead of just being digital consumers.
Founded 2007 - present
Dr. Michaella Janse van Vuuren is a designer and artist with a PhD in Electrical Engineering. These diverse interests enable her to create sculptures that are technically complex and artistically competent. She founded NOMILI in 2007 to exclusively focus on design for 3D printing or additive manufacturing.
“I love the challenge of creating something that is imagined and then designed on computer and seeing if my idea printed out as envisioned. The first time I hold the design in my hand is when the finished product comes out of the 3D printer”
