Construction of our cars commenced this week after much careful planning throughout Term 1. We are down to seven teams from our original nine as the demands of the project start to impact on the teams.
Our three Year 7 teams are using balsa as the basis for their constructions while the Year 8 teams are forging ahead with using our 3D printer to build their cars. This is a great innovation and could only have occurred through the wonderful generosity of our TAS Coordinator Mr Davidson. He has spent many hours showing the boys how to use Onshape and now is working with them to build their models so the 3D printer will be able to replicate their design. It will be great to document their journey and hopefully provide a roadmap for other schools to follow.
We will be giving weekly updates throughout the construction phase.
