A cat exercise wheel, mini motor bike and wave inspired bench are just some of the impressive work currently on display as part of the School’s annual Design and Technology Exhibition, this year showcasing over 200 entries and 13 unique categories.

Design and Technology students from Years 7 to 12 were joined by friends, family and Christ Church staff at the exhibition’s opening last Friday evening for an exclusive viewing of the hand-crafted masterpieces, which have ranged anywhere from a full semester to one year to complete.

Head of Design and Technology Mr Alec Barbour said, “Each year we are amazed at the quality of work the students are able to produce and this year we have three outdoor dining tables on exhibition that would not be out of place in any showroom.”

“Every year of our Design and Technology course builds upon the skills and processes covered the year prior, leading to a number of outstanding and unique designs and solutions in the senior years. Projects can range from passive speaker boxes during Year 7 to napkin holders in Year 8 or Co2 dragsters in Year 9 to segmented bowl turning in Year 10.”

“We have also been fortunate to have MLC girls from Years 11 and 12 involved for the past seven years. They have proven to be every bit as capable as the boys and quickly develop skills they often only experience for the first time.”

“We are extremely proud of the students and are pleased that their time, energy and motivation has been rewarded with such fine results.”

All members of the school community are welcome to view the exhibition (public access from 9.00am to 3.00pm) which concludes this Friday. Click here to view this year’s Design and Technology prize winners.
