Year 8 have been busy “lighting” up their Design and Technology lessons by designing and making their very own LED mood light. Students used CAD to design their Acrylic Top, which was laser cut, they then vacuum formed the base using a mould and then soldered a USB to an LED strip. Students were allowed to be creative and choose their own theme for the light.

Here’s what some of the students had to say….

“I really enjoyed using the vacuum former and mould cutter” Isaac Acquah

“I really loved soldering , it was such a great process!” Mufaro Chitava

“I really enjoyed using the vacuum former, its cool!” Jacob Inglis
