DT Engineering Captain 2019-20

DT Engineering Captain 2019-20

My name is Harvey Collins and I have been chosen as the next DT engineering captain, this role is one I’d been hoping to attain at the start of my DT engineering GCSE. Both D.T woodwork and D.T metal are courses that anyone with knowledge and an interest of engineering, can take with certainty of a good experience in the classroom, all while learning skills and useful information about how to make different products. With help from three very involved and knowledgeable staff, my class and I were able to achieve strong grades that matched our hard work. As engineering Captain, I will work closely with the DT teachers to complete department training which will be set for me on a weekly basis. I will be attending lunchtime and after school STEMM clubs, and promoting DT engineering in the school through project development and coaching younger students. I am also looking forward to my involvement in F1 this year where I will be taking on the design engineer’s job using an industry standard CAD drawing package called solidworks.
