Students in Senior School receive CAD (Computer Aided Design) lessons in Year 7 and 8 as part of their Computing lessons. They focus on architecture and learn how to use Google Sketchup to design their own building which is based on the work of a famous architect. The girls are then able to view their buildings in virtual reality during the design process. This allows them to adapt and modify their buildings in a unique way, quite unlike the experience of simply seeing them on a screen. Being able to ‘step inside’ a virtual building that they have designed offers new and exciting opportunities in the world of design.
Students are also able to take part in the extra curricular STEM club.
Students are taught about various Design & Technology principles through our innovative Interdisciplinary curriculum as can be seen below.
