3D printing workshop

As the end of the school year approached and students were choosing GSCEs for next year, Rosedale College invited us to do a show-and-tell about what it’s like to be an architect and designer. We got the kids to design their dream school (swimming pools were a firm favourite – probably because it was sweltering outside), drew their designs in Google Sketchup, and created a scale model in our 3D printer. They were so intrigued by our piece of kit we could barely keep up with all their questions! Watch out for budding architects amongst this group.
