Design Camp; Technologies Week

in Senior School News

Girton’s Unit 3-4 students from Systems Engineering and Product Design and Technology and Textiles have participated strongly in Design and Technologies Week this year. Their excellent work will be on display at Girton’s library and in the Morey Foyer area. Please support them by visiting these displays during Design and Technologies week, October 15 – 21.

Initiatives such as this are vital in Australia’s continued drive towards innovation and facing challenges with creative problem solving and design thinking. It provides flow-on effects of prosperity, technological development and the emergence of exciting career opportunities for young Australians. Over 20,000 students across Australia participate.

Computer Aided Design (CAD) software skills and knowledge feature strongly in the technology classes that Mr Rod Knowles and Mr Jacob Guidice teach.

These skills are fundamental within all contemporary design industries.

The Design & Technologies Week from the 15th to the 21st of October 2018 is a national initiative to engage schools throughout Australia.
