The students of grade 7 were given hands on training to design in CAD software a customized key chain, slice it and print it out using a 3D printer-the software used in 123D Design. This activity not only encouraged team work but also engrained confidence to create and imagine objects, concepts of measurements, fitment in 3D. Post break the students also worked on a breadboard device. They were handheld with regard to colour coding on the breadboard and how to connect cables to make circuits work. The students also learned the basic concepts of battery, power, inputs and outputs like lights, LED’s in series and parallel. The hands on projects exposed students to a variety of topics in fields like design thinking, product design and programming thereby preparing the DPGites to choose their field of work/s for the future.
