Year 10 DT Pupils visit London
Some of our Year 10 DT pupils enjoyed visits to London recently, studying some of the city's remarkable architecture and participating in a competitive workshop at the James Dyson Foundation. Head of DT, Mr Dolan, tells us more...
Made in Brunel Event
Year 10 Product Design students took part in the James Dyson Foundation competition at the Made in Brunel event on London’s Southbank. Pupils produced a prototype model and presented their idea for an air-based lint roller called Lintair. The presentation that pupils gave was led by Isabella Newhouse, Jasmin Eloubaidi-Saunders, Rachel Lott and Thomas O’Dwyer who then took questions from the audience about their product concept.
The group performed really well and produced a really interesting idea that met the brief and was environmentally sensitive, commercially viable and innovative.
Year 10 DEC pupils visited Central London to tour our city’s iconic buildings and complete their research into interesting topographical features of the squares, plazas and terraces visited on the day. The pupils began by visiting the Lime Street area, where they studied the form of buildings such as Tower 42 and the Lloyd’s building - comparing those to more modern examples of London architecture such as the Leadenhall building and the new “Scalpel” building.
Enjoying a lunch along the banks of the river Thames next to London Bridge, our pupils then moved onto further iconic structures such as St. Paul’s Cathedral and the Barbican building. Pupils will now use their experience to help influence their own community building project as part of their Design…Engineer…Construct! course.
