Students explore the design processes of innovation and technology through 3D printing, drawing, dimensioning and positioning simple objects. Pupils are encouraged to engage in TinkerCad design, coding, architectural floor plans, broadcasting, blogging, vlogging, website development, social media and more. Through the exploration of robotic concepts, peer collaboration, Google apps, evolution of dimensional art, stop motion, designing of 3D print objects and video production students are creating the jobs of tomorrow (which have yet to be created) using the essential skills to communicate, be creative and think critically.
