Students visit Design Museum
The Design and Technology Department recently ran a trip for all Fourth and Sixth Form Design students to the Design Museum in London. As well as being given time to explore the museum’s excellent ‘Designer, Maker, User’ exhibition the students took part in a chair design workshop run my museum staff. ‘What is the difference between a chair and a seat?’ and other questions were discussed, before students got to design their own chairs targeting specific user groups. The experience hopefully helped to inspire our designers ahead of their GCSE and A Level coursework.
