Ingenious creations displayed at Perse Design & Technology Show
12 Jun 2019
The Peter Hall Performing Arts Centre provided the setting for a variety of inventive projects from Perse students at the school’s annual Design & Technology Show.
It was the first time the venue had been used for the exhibition, with the Gallery Studio and the landing facing on to Ellison Court proving to be stunning spaces for the display of students’ innovative designs.
An exoskeletal hand, a personal alarm with GPS and a ‘smart’ cycle path light were among the creative projects designed and produced by Upper Sixth students.
Non-electronic pieces made by Year 11 pupils included a collapsible chair, a water bottle that records how much liquid the user has drunk and a hockey mask, while a bath monitor, a pinball machine and a window alarm featured among their electronic designs.
Perse Head of Design & Technology Keith Wilkin was delighted with the creations that had been designed and built by the students as part of their A level and GCSE coursework.
He said: “It was great to see the technical quality of their work and how they adhered to their design journeys with excellent portfolios. We had a really good reaction to the show and the Peter Hall Performing Arts Centre provided a very nice environment for the exhibition.”
