Computer Cut Wingfield supports student learning at LFHS

The Stage 2 Design and Technology class would like to formally acknowledge the generous support of Computer Cut, Wingfield in the supply of time, labour and materials in supporting the learning outcomes of students. Students in the class are studying the impact and role of advanced technology in the design and manufacturing process of engineering products. Autodesk Inventor Sheetmetal was used to create 3D models which were prototyped from 3mm MDF which was laser cut using our Epilog Laser Engraver. The final product was to be Laser Cut from 3mm steel plate. Contact was made with Tony Brister from Computer Cut who was able to support the students achieve this outcome. Student files were sent to the company which were job set ready for production. Last Thursday members of the class went to the factory to watch the process and view the range of advanced technologies available.

Providing students with these links to industry establishes a vital context to their learning. The generosity of Tony and Computer Cut cannot be underestimated. The experience was invaluable to the students who were in awe of the fact that Tony had donated his time, resources and materials to the students of Le Fevre High School. On behalf of the school I would like to thank Computer Cut for their generous support of this course.
