Design & 3D Printing

  • Year 7  

In the Engineering and 3D Design classes across Year 7’s and Year 8’s this semester students have been going above and beyond their design skills to create a Spaceship in Year 7, and a Boat in Year 8. For the Spaceship students had to follow some intricate instructions to add in a body, then wings, windows representing rooms in the spaceship as on or off depending on the colour and finally the legs. Some students decided to go all out and add in their own personal touch to their designs as well as cities/landscapes around to enhance their design even further. Below are just a few of many amazing and unique designs that the students have constructed throughout term 3.

  • Year 8

For the boats students had a bit more freedom in creating their design in which they first practiced how to create a hull (bottom) of the boat and once doing so designed their own while adding in their own elements onto the boat. Below is a simple design and more complicated design that was created by one of our most dedicated students. Be mindful that all of these designs were created completely from scratch with no instructions to follow, so it is amazing to see the work they can complete.

Year 9 | Microbit Elective

This semester Year 9 students commenced their learning Journey on Microbit. Students applied their skills in our project-based learning using their coding knowledge and design thinking skills using microbits equipment to construct their projects. They are working in creative ways and exploring the technology behind their design. 

Students have been amazed at their capabilities and what they can achieve when they have their mindset on tasks. 

So far students have created a Ticklebot, Guitar, and wallet. The students have been enjoying this course as it gives them the ability to engage through hands on activities.
