Design and Technology Project

Posted: 17th October 2017

In the Design and Technology rotation this half term, Year 8 students worked on an Architecture project.  They researched contemporary architects, visited the Design Museum, sketched architectural features from life and created increasingly complex, interesting models for buildings, starting with Plasticine, moving on to apples and cocktail sticks, cardboard and then balsa wood (using all the workshop machine tools), before transferring their designs onto the 3D design programme Tinker Cad.

Khalid developed his ideas further at home, designing and creating an incredible moving hand capable of being manipulated to pick up a polystyrene ball that was powered by syringe pneumatics, very impressive indeed.
