Pioneering Projects 6/12/21

As part of their ‘Safety Signs and Electronics’ topic in Engineering, Year 9 students were presented with two challenges: to make a set of original dice that can be used to play board games, and to design and make a clock that has dual functions which can either be used as wall art or just a conventional clock. They were instructed to carry out their clock designs using a scroll saw, a band face sander and a pillar drill, employing a variety of design strategies including: marking out, measuring, cutting, sanding, painting and varnishing. 

Throughout the two challenges, our pioneering students developed spectacular designs and the confidence for 21st century work and life, inspiring and nurturing future innovators, designers and visionaries!
