3 Printer has Arrived

18/09/2018

​It has arrived! Coolum SHS has been working towards purchasing a state of the art 3D Printer into the school this year as part of our development of Design Focussed Curriculum in the Technology field.  It will take up residence in our new Design Lab that Year 10 Graphics students have designed themselves and will enable batch printing of student designs (a much faster process than what is achievable through smaller ‘hobby’ printers).

Next year, students within the Technology Faculty will be using the printer in their Year 7 and 8 Technology classes, Year 9, 10 and 11 Design and in Year 12 Graphics.  The device is an industry standard 3D Printer capable of printing a whole class’s work overnight and students will be using it to develop physical prototypes of their designs in class, to solve real-life problems as part of their learning. The printer will be used not only for subjects within the Technology Faculty, but also in various subjects from across the school.
