  • 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.
  • For teachers who are either new to or not very experienced/confident with working in the timber workshop. Instruction will include hand tools suitable for use with students, as well as machine use suitable for teachers.

    Work with traditional timber techniques creating two projects aimed at students in Years 7-9. The projects will look at a range of production methods, tips and tricks to ensure the greater success for students.

    Suitable tools and materials will be provided.
  • Contrary to many beliefs, the metal and engineering sector in Australia is far from dead and buried. However, trying to find projects that tick all that syllabus points and engage students can be quite a challenge in our time-poor teaching system. Look no further, as an ex-metalwork tradesperson I was passionate about seeing Metal embedded in Stage 4 and flourish in Stage 5-6. In the last 4 years I’ve had great success with new innovative projects that has seen our student numbers grow from 20-80 in Stage 5-6. Join me at Hands on Tech in Morisset (H.O.T) to make some projects that cover a variety of tools and machines. Projects for the day include Stage 4 Foldable Fire Pit, Stage 5 Fire Pit/Fire Tongs and a Metal Pen. (Projects, drawings, teaching programs, assessments and resources available on the day).
  • We will cover the foundations of box making using various methods that could be used in a classroom. The course will cover preparation of timber, cutting splined mitre joints, cutting housing joints, veneering plywood, gluing and clamping boxes, fitting butt hinges, and finishing.
  • Have you always wanted to know the Tips & Tricks of doing River Pours? How to get rid of those pesky air bubbles in pour on finishes? Or how to achieve great finishes using recycled timber? What products and requirements can be used for internal and external conditions? This workshop will give you all the tips and tricks and correct products to do River Pours and more. By doing your own projects you will be loaded up with techniques for working with recycled and new timber for making unique woodwork projects. You will gain tips & tricks on how to take very ordinary pieces of timber from fence palings to slab timber and turn them into one off masterpieces. The plan is for you to bring manageable pieces of 2nd hand timber with you to play with over the two days. We will do the pouring / Epoxy coating on Saturday and finishing on Sunday. We will provide you with a list of goodies (Do not sweat if you do not have timber – we can supply) and tools you will need to bring once advised you have selected our knowledgeable workshop.
