Event details

The students were introduced to a wide variety of materials and processes throughout the day and enjoyed getting creative and hands-on with alginate and plaster casting.

The aim of the Design Day was to give students a sense of what real life designing is all about whilst working with industry experts on live project briefs. The event offered students the chance to embrace Design and Technology (D&T). Working alongside professionals offered them an insight into how the subject can provide key skills in a range of career paths as well as contributing to their general education.

Technical staff from NTU included Kerry Truman, Julian Robinson and Lee Bollard. Staff were joined by NTU Maker Club student volunteers Sophie Gilpin, Final Year BA (Hons) Furniture and Product Design and Lukas Grundstrom, Year One BA (Hons) Product Design who offered their support as Design Day mentors.
