Design Tech Projects:
After the DT Department purchased the 3D Scanning device (Shining 3D) they asked me to help get the system running, and to explore how is might be used. We collaborated on scanning in several art projects and also demonstrated the system to a group of students. I also helped DT demo the system for teachers during the G&T with DT event. There is a lot of potential for combining CAD, 3D scanning and VR design, building skills in students and teachers that are far above those expected at high school level. We have begun to see these skills being implemented within the school (3D printed chair attachments), but at the moment there isn’t capacity available to fully integrate these skills into our curricula.
