As part of Year 8 Visual Communication Design, 8H have been lucky enough to be chosen to trial the laser cutter as part of the new Year 8 Visual Communication curriculum. Students have had the opportunity to design something with EngraveLab software and then have printed (either engrave or cut) their design on either acrylic or wood. They have enjoyed seeing how the laser cutter works and having the chance to use such a big and impressive piece of equipment!
Ben from IT has been great, coming down in our double lessons and helping out with the technical and safety aspects of showing the kids how to work the laser cutter.
We will continue with this trial in term two so that every student in the class gets the opportunity to make something with the laser cutter.
