The design and technology department continues to invest in facilities to ensure students have state of the art learning equipment at their fingertips and is extremely pleased to have purchased and installed a new Trotec Speedy 300 laser cutter in recent weeks to replace an older model.
This new machine will bring many benefits to students of all year groups who will be able to manufacture a wide range of products as well as increase their knowledge and understanding of the CAD/ CAM process. Staff in the design and technology department are looking forward to their return to start the initial training process and use of the laser cutter to support their teaching.
The machine has already been put through its paces manufacturing 3D printed head visors to support The British School, one of our local primary feeder schools. Using the 3D printer and our laser cutter we created variations of the mask and these were presented to The British School staff on Thursday 18 June by Mr Hanney, head of design and technology. The masks will now be used by the primary staff in the school setting and we are really pleased that we were able to help.
