So You Think You Can Design?
After attending the DATTA conference in 2018 and feeling inspired by DATTA president, Peter Murphy’s keynote speech, we implemented Design and Technology Week for the first time ever here at The Rockhampton Grammar School. We had daily videos, quizzes and activities and participated in the competition ‘So You Think You Can Design?’ As part of that competition, students had the opportunity to attend design sessions in a bid to solve global problems such as traffic congestion, pollution and plastic waste. We had many innovative designs and 3 of our students got through to the final with a portable pizza oven, an electromagnetic car and an exhaust collection module. As a school, we are incredibly proud of our student achievements and even more so that one of our designers; Joel Brighton was awarded third place winning his very own 3D printer. Huge congratulations Joel.
