Last week, some students were selected to take part in the SpecTechular event. This event took place in the Casebrook School Hall.
It showed people what Casebrook students do during their technology and specialist time. It was held from 15:30 to 20:00. Sadly, a huge storm hit Christchurch for a couple of hours, right in the middle of the showcase. Because of that school ended five minutes early because there were reports of golf ball sized hailstones.
There were science displays about acidity, digital displays including ozobots, beebots, Minecraft education edition with Unity and EV3’s, delicious food, and amazing art. There were even wonderful creations made in the hard materials room. A few students helped out by playing music in the background.
We interviewed William Terry from Digi Technologies.
The part of digi tech in Casebrook Intermediate that I like the most is Code Avengers
Totally it’s a great way to show students the classrooms in the most realistic way we can
Now here’s Katie Ward on Hard Materials.
What I really enjoy the most is the laser cutter.
Me and a few other students worked on the vinyl cutter, we cut stickers for people that said their name.
There were three different shifts that the students could choose from: 15:30-17:45,17:45-20:00 or 15:30-20:00.
The event was a great success due to the contribution of many students and teachers and most importantly, we could not have it without the primary school pupils.
A huge thank you to all of the Technology and Specialist teachers - Miss Aitken, Miss Zant, Mrs Dick-McCann, Mr Cook and Mrs Johns.
