Pewter Jewellery Project
Students focus on Art Deco as a design movement and are tasked with designing a piece of jewellery cast from pewter. In this unit students are provided with an opportunity to use the brazing hearths, heating equipment capable of melting metals at 700 degrees Celsius.
Students get to grips with programming, electronics and electrical systems in this exciting task involving Lego Mindstorms equipment. They will design, program and build Lego robots which navigate and execute programmed tasks.
Bag for Life Project
Tasked with designing a sustainable textile bag, students will design and manufacture a portable bag for life, learning techniques from the world of textiles, including sewing, hand stitching, applique and even heat pressing.
