'I Love 3D Printing' Event

On Tuesday,13th of March, twelve Year 8 students attended an event at the ARMC (Advanced Manufacturing Research Centre) as part of our STEM (Science Technology Engineering and Mathematics) activities.

We had an amazing day playing with advanced 3D CAD (Computer Aided Design) software and then we were 'set loose' in small groups to play with 3D printers ourselves.

Students also had the opportunity to pick the brains of the experts, including representatives from Gripple, Rolls-Royce, Boeing, Ultimaker and HP. They also tried their hand at virtual engineering on aircraft engines and virtual welding.

The students had a great day finding out about new technologies and local opportunities in engineering.
