Students in Year 7 and 8 have been enjoying some very practical Design Technology lessons making ‘Fun Pods.’
First, students had to plan and design their models before they were able to produce them. To make their pods they used a material called ‘foam board’ which they moulded into their chosen shape using a thermoforming machine. They then used a range of saws, drills and files to smooth and perfect their models before decorating them with vinyl stickers.
Their completed pods can now be used to store anything from pocket money to jewelery – anything they can fit inside!
