January 18, 2017: Building Big Ben
The Monday after school STEAM club have been busy working on a grand project for the past two months, and have finally completed it. They have been using the 3D printer, a clock kit and a Raspberry Pi to print the parts of the Big Ben tower, paint the parts, construct the tower, install a working clock, and finally programme a computer to play recordings of the actual chimes and bongs of Big Ben. The printed pieces | Painting | Constructing the Tower Adding a working clock | Adding the computer | Completed Tower Fantastic work from all involved.

Well done to the Monday after school STEAM club who have completed painting and constructing their latest 3D creation - Elizabeth Tower, home of Big Ben. After Christmas they will be adding real working clock hands to one of the faces to turn their creation into a working timepiece.

September 15, 2016: Competition Time
Have you logged into PurpleMash in the last few days? They've launched a new competition based around their 2Design&Make tool, and its new 3D printing option. Why not design a fantastic model and enter the competition. We'll even take a few of your designs and 3D print them in school too.

July 11, 2016: Printing the Future
As part of our ever developing computing curriculum, we were excited this week to receive our latest piece of technology: a 3D printer. This amazing device allows us to print out 3D objects that can be held, examined, coloured and be amazed by. We already have a great piece of software within our PurpleMash online resource that allows pupils to create 3D designs of cars, trucks, lorries, buses, trains, houses, and various other 3D shapes. It's called '2Design&Make' (you'll find it in the 'tools' section of PurpleMash) and now, with our new 3D printer, we can take those pupil designs and make physical copies that can be held and coloured. In September there are plans to use this within lessons, and at other times across the curriculum too. We've tested it with a PurpleMash vehicle, as well as an ornamental vase, and Mrs Ingle has asked for a special object related to her class and a lesson topic...
