Visit to the Design Museum, London

Mr Sturla, Head of the Design and Technology faculty, reports:

The Design and Technology faculty took 41 Year 10's to visit the Design Museum in Kensington last week. 

The aim of the trip was to give students inspiration into the world of Design and Technology and to witness first hand some of the UK's most iconic products. Students spent part of the day observing famous and creative designs from history up to the present day. From the paperclip to 3D printed chairs students witnessed first-hand how these were made and why they were successful. In the afternoon students attended a Workshop taken by a Designer from the museum which focused on how to make products function as well as look cool. This trip will give students a valuable insight into the world of Product Design which will help them through their GCSE courses.
