We are delighted to have funded a 3D printer for Presdales School. At the moment, 3D Design is currently only an on-screen exercise using SketchUp. The printer will provide their computing students with the ability to actually create an increased range of digital artefacts. The school plans to progress to students designing and printing objects which can then be controlled by their own programs e.g. buggies, robotic arms and models.
As well as encouraging and enabling girls to excel at I.T. and engineering within the curriculum, Presdales' bid was further strengthened by the additional benefit of the award to their 40-strong STEM club.
