An activity update from our CREATE Education Hub
Our Hub schools never cease to amaze us with their pioneering projects and limitless imagination. We would like to share an update on the innovative work and activities of Tom and his students at Chatham & Clarendon Grammar School in Kent:
Robots for Good – We were introduced to the project by the CREATE Education Project team at Ultimaker GB. What an amazing opportunity to be involved in printing parts which will literally change lives! We are in the initial stages of working sixth formers on the Robots for Good Project. The project will form a basis to CREATE a unique selling point for students applying to Universities.
Wind turbine Project
The 3D HUB is working sixthformers on the wind turbine project, another basis to create a unique selling point for student going to university. Currently at the initial idea stage and looking to print iterative designs using the Ultimakers though the upcoming development stage.
A collaborative project to manufacture parts for a Remotely operated submersible. The project links the CREATE Education HUB with schools across Europe and is currently with the government at approval stage.
Currently working with our local theme park, Dreamland http://www.dreamland.co.uk/ to design and develop fairground ride based furniture and themed rides made form reclaimed wood from the Scenic Railway and includes using 3D printed woodfill parts as the joints and brackets. The work will be submitted into the nationwide makeIT competition: http://www.proskills.co.uk/makeit-2014-15-ambitions-report/
Last but not least the school have been co-authored on a scientific paper through 3D Printing:
