You will learn how to make a plain silver ring, a twisted ring and a pendant in sterling silver. This is taught from metalworking principles and can be taught in a metalwork room with quite basic tools.
  • This training course will demonstrate the basics of using Adobe Illustrator to create CAD files for Laser Cutting. During the course you will work through a task suitable for Stage 4 Technology Mandatory (Year 8), focusing on product design and graphics.
  • This training course will demonstrate the basics of using AutoCAD to create and print 2D Architecture drawings. During the course you will work through a task suitable for Stage 5/Preliminary Design and Technology focusing on architectural design and drafting.
  • This is a course introducing educators to Onshape. “Onshape is a professional-grade, cloud-native CAD platform that students and educators can access for FREE on any device, anywhere, anytime.”
    It is cloud-based platform that works on both Mac and PC. Design complex solid and surface models using top-down or bottom-up methodologies. Create highly structured and detailed assemblies with built-in standard hardware and parts linked from other Documents. Create fully detailed drawings of parts and assemblies with dimensions, and import and export of DWG, DWT and DXF file formats. Participants will leave the course able to model and draw products suitable for high school technology and engineering subjects. They will be able to manage Onshape in a school environment and access and develop resources for use in the classroom.
  • Introduction to Blender 2D and 3D animation. In this course, you'll learn to use Blender to create comprehensive animations. Using multiple tools and techniques.
