Explore another dimension……The third dimension that is!

The Technology and Design department recently took delivery of a 3D printer. This exciting and state-of-the-art system has the potential to create solid products from basic CAD drawings. The current GCSE cohort will be the first pupils to benefit from this new acquisition; however staff are hopeful that Key Stage 3 pupils will also be able to explore this new method of design and manufacturing.

Head of department, Mr Robinson, said “I am thrilled to be able to add 3D printer technology into our curriculum. This purchase represents a significant investment in our pupils, who will now be able to gain practical and first hand experience of using such a unique system. As STEM subjects have become an attractive career choice, St Joseph’s college students will already have a firm footing on the ladder to success.”
