Many congratulations to the nine Canfordians who have been offered places at Oxford and Cambridge Universities this year.
DT Pupils turn Lego Creators during Lockdown
Fourth Form and Lower Sixth Design Technology pupils at Canford took part in a project during the Summer Term of remote learning which introduced them to product design and process.
The brief was to design a new Lego toy focused on the 6-14 age group market, limited in scope and scale to a cost of no more than £25. Ideally the toy’s theme would be linked to a film or film franchise, supporting an existing toy range or acting as a proposal for a new Lego range.
Key skills developed during the project included analysis of a design problem and use of CAD software to turn concepts into reality. Pupils were tasked to explore different themes and devise a range of starting points before sketching a number of ideas and deciding on their favourite. They then developed their thinking into something to create as a Lego based toy. They shared their work with fellow pupils and staff online. A great example of how learning has continued at Canford during the lockdown.
