“Students can design a 3D model on the computer and are then able to print a 3D scale model of their design,” head of cross-curricular learning area Steve Adcock said. “This course gives students the opportunity to explore any interest they may have in the world of three-dimensional design and great experience for when they are making choices for further study.”

Year 8 student Connor McKay had the honour of creating and printing the first successful 3D model: a phone case.
