Design and Technology Outreach

This week, the Design Technology Department are running their annual outreach programme playing host to Year 6 pupils from eight local primary schools.

The pupils spend a couple of hours in our flourishing and well resourced department enjoying a computer aided design (CAD) and manufacture (CAM) experience. Each pupil designs and then assembles their own clock to take home using CAD software and laser cutting machines.

In the Design and Technology (DT) Department, our pupils have the opportunity to experiment with computer-aided design (CAD) software and computer numerically controlled (CNC) manufacturing processes such as milling, turning, routing and laser-cutting.

It is a subject where problem solving, planning, development, communication and presentation come together with research and independent thinking to create a strong combination of skills for everyday work and life.
