Years 7 and 8 have been very busy in DT this term designing egg cups, musical money boxes and solar powered Sun Jar lights.
Year 7 Flat packed Egg Cup Project taught by Ms. Dunne: designed using 2D design on computer and then laser cut Acrylic. These have been designed to be sent through the post as a gift/ promotional item.
Year 7 Musical Money Box Project taught by Mrs Osborne: circuits assembled and soldered by students, programmed music chosen and applied by computer to a chip on the circuit board. Decoration formed using the plastic vacuum former. Every time a coin is dropped through the slot, the music plays.
Year 8 Solar powered Sun Jar Light Project taught by Mrs Osborne: circuits assembled and soldered by students; solar panel stores and releases electric power to allow the light to shine. Light is a rainbow LED that changes colour repeatedly.
