I joined Newport High School, Wales in 2013 as a teacher of Design and Technology and Product Design. Prior to teaching, I studied design and fine art, completing an MA in Fine Art (specialising in sculpture and foundry practices). Having practiced as an Artist, I then trained as a Design and Technology teacher undertaking the PGCE at Cardiff Metropolitan University.
My introduction to 3D printing came with Create Education’s loan scheme, when the school was loaned an Ultimaker 2. My interest in 3D printing has grown from this point, seeing a clear benefit to teaching and learning. I am currently using Autodesk software with 3D printing to develop concept models and complex components with my GCSE and A Level courses.
My aim is to allow the technology to be utilised by all key stages. Progression to this point was aided by a winning entry to the Ultimaker Education Challenge, where I won an Ultimaker 2+ and a supply of filament, for the development of STEAM projects.
The technology of 3D printing makes higher marking bands accessible for learners. It enables learners to utilise another process of manufacturing their designs. Due to the ease in which the machines operate, learners can independently design on many CAD platforms and print their own ideas.
