Student highlights from #InspiringLancashire mid-point review

Earlier this year as part of the BAE Systems Sponsored #InspiringLancashire Project, 3D Printing STEM workshop days were delivered to groups of Year 8 students in 52 schools in Lancashire.

During the workshops students learned how to use 3D modelling and Slicing software and Ultimaker 3D printers to design, slice and 3D print model rocket parts. The workshops also introduced students to the applications of additive manufacturing technology in industry and engineering as well as potential careers the requirement for digital skills.

This term schools have been developing their skills and working on a “Challenge Project” where teams of students are given a brief to develop their skills further by designing a 3D printed prototype product to improve the environment in or around a local waterway.

In November we returned to three of the schools taking part in the project to chat with students about their experiences in taking part in the #InspiringLancashire programme so far.

Here are the highlights.

CREATE Education would like to thank the students at St. Augustine’s RC High School, Millfields Science and Performing Arts College and Our Lady and St. John Catholic College for taking the time to share their experiences with us.

Next term we will be sharing the complete video interviews from each school if you want to hear more.
