The objective of the day was to unite students from both schools and provide an opportunity for them to learn and apply higher order thinking skills in a realworld context which encouraged innovation and creativity.
Students were asked to design and present their ideas for a hand washing device to be used during humanitarian emergencies around the world. The design had to be modelled using 3D software and be capable of eventually being printed on a 3D printer a working example of a 3D printer was brought in for the occasion.
The final ideas were highly creative and provided a unique opportunity for students to display their entrepreneurial skills. The winning team's proposal will be submitted to Oxfam as a viable solution for their current project of the same format. Further details of Oxfam's project can be found here.
Thanks to Lisa Craddock, Adam Rickets, Philippe Vanhille, Jamie Cormick and Matthew Roberts for their organisation and our year 10 students for their ingenuity and professionalism.
