Year 4 SMS boys and girls recently visited the Officer Campus to tour the Art and Design Department and to participate in a Design and Technology workshop to investigate the concept of mass-production.
The students worked in pairs to produce a BGS themed Lego character from prefabricated components. They were able to observe both the 3D printer and CNC router in operation and developed skills in joinery through the safe use of hand tools. The design teachers were impressed with the students competency with the techniques demonstrated and the boys expressed their excitement in one day returning to Berwick Grammar to design their own pieces of furniture.
