DT Department receives Laser Cutter

Tim Weston, Head of DT from Oakham School, delivered a wonderful laser cutter, which has been loaned to OBH for the remainder of this term. This is a brilliant opportunity for the pupils to explore CAD/CAM and it will be able them to use TechSoft 2D Design to create a number of prototypes using the laser. We are enormously grateful to Oakham and this will broaden the DT experience for our pupils. The DT curriculum has been reinvigorated and the children have really enjoyed exploring Food Technology, Textiles, Resistant Materials, Systems and Electronics with
their teachers. The future for the Department looks exciting – watch this space!
