A Positive Choice

Product Design - Year 8 Projects

Year 8 students are looking at using steel and brazing to create 2 and 3D sculptures and balancing toys. They design their own plan and work scheme before cutting and measuring their own pieces. Brazing is a high temperature process which requires skill, patience and courage. We think they are doing some excellent work and they are very proud of it.

They are also looking at the needs of people living in small spaces. This project was inspired by the TV programme 'George Clarke's Amazing Spaces'. Many people find buying a traditional home in big cities very expensive and overcrowded. We are looking at different ways of solving this problem using lower cost alternative technology and thinking.
