BTEC Art & Design Printing Trip

Students on the BTEC Art & Design course have been exploring branding and graphic design, they have designed logos and products for a restaurant, inspired by Hong Kong culture. These logos were sent to Ditto Ditto, a printing press company, to be etched onto metal plates.  Students visited Ditto Ditto to use the printing press machine to print their logo onto stationary.  It was a fun and educational learning experience!

Year 12 Robotics Club & Year 8 Global Thinking

Year 12 Robotics Club students came into a few Year 8 Global Thinking lessons to help them build a robotic arm.  The Year 8 students are currently working on a unit about inventions and were given a problem-solving challenge to building a robotic arm. The Year 12 students learned how to build the arm in their own time, met during break times to share their learning, and then came to the Year 8 lessons to troubleshoot. 

The Year 8 students worked in groups of three to explore the robotics kits,  tested ideas, and followed complex instructions.
