Maker Machine

A number of primary and secondary students had the opportunity to work on exciting hands-on science and design projects recently.

A visit by the industrial design team Maker Machine brought an up close encounter with a 3D printer to students in years 5 and 6.  They also took part in a rapid design workshop which had them involved in the whole design process from generating ideas to creating a prototype. 

During the same week keen secondary science students visited the annual University of Newcastle Science and Engineering Challenge in Dubbo where they spent a day immersed in scientific challenges and problem solving.
