2nd Yr Technology

Minecraft Buzz-off game

Took a different slant this year with the buzz-off game and decided to go with a theme: Minecraft.
Trying to integrate wiring and hide electronic components is always a challenge so we tried laminating and cutting groves to hide wires etc. It worked a treat. Some of the student projects turned out so well and they really got involved in the whole process from start to finish.

3rd yr Technology

I love giving students a challenge and seeing what they come up with! This is just a little clip of a scotch yolk mechanism. You gotta love it!

6th Technology

Knife Holders

I love this one. Starting the term off with a practical exercise based on a shield for holding knives. The students came up with some interesting designs, especially the rotating knife thrower.
