The major focus for 3Ds in recent weeks has been the preparation for the Dream Design Develop Expo, the culmination of the semester. Students have been busy identifying a range of ‘problems that need fixing’ and then working through a series of prototypes to develop an effective solution. At the expo students presented their prototypes, ideas, and simulations to demonstrate the concept of innovation and whether products and processes are the result of human need or human want. Amongst the many amazing innovations were a surfboard with built in storage, biodegradable chewing gum and a real time art sharing (like google docs but for art). It was a fantastic experience, with the students putting on a display of high-quality learning.

In 3DS our attention now turns to taking a deeper look at materials properties and science.
