Although the delivery of a practical subject in lock down has had its challenges the boys have risen to the occasion and shown some great innovative ways to develop and model in 3D along with exploring the CAD software.
The upper sixth students were challenged to model a ‘design classic’ to support their designers and design movement topics.
The third and fourth years have been designing and manufacturing cardboard furniture that had to hold their weight, although several decided to let others be the test pilots!
The lower school boys were challenged to model and manufacture cardboard mechanisms. Jonny produced an impressive piece of automata.
The fifth year boys started to prepare for the A-level product design course by analysing the brand identity of some of their favourite companies. They then had to identify a gap in their product line and develop a potential concept for a ‘Dragons Den’ style launch.
