This workshop is aimed at encouraging the use of STEM in high schools through the making of bottle Rockets. This unit is suitable for Technology (Mandatory), Stage 5 Industrial Technology - Engineering or any problem based learning environment (that’s DT+IA). This exciting application allows some difficult to understand engineering concepts like centre of mass, centre of pressure,  moment of inertia, pressure versus volume, lift, drag and thrust to be demonstrated concretely using a model constructed from recycled PET bottles. Participants will be involved in making bottle rocket design styles that feature curved, straight and swept back fins. We will also investigate and discuss programming alternatives and management for the use of rocketry in schools. A risk assessment proforma, programming materials including student folios, class notes and engineering concepts are included. See Youtube example here:

** Onshape = 24 capacity

This workshop teaches fundamental CAD skills using Onshape. The skills are similar in many CAD programs, including Fusion 360, Creo, Solidworks, Inventor, etc, so you could easily take what you learn here and apply it to other CAD programs if need be.​ Onshape is a free, web based, cloud-storage, multi-user CAD program which works on any device and is therefore ideal for BYOD schools. This means there is no licencing or downloading and installing. If your computer has a web browser (preferably Chrome or Firefox) you’ve already got Onshape installed!

You will need to bring a device, and although Onshape does work on mobile devices such as iPads and mobile phones, it would be best to bring a laptop with a real mouse!

For those who know the lingo – the workshop will cover Extruding, Dimensioning, Basic Sketching, Round/Fillet, Chamfer, Mirroring and Linear and Circular Patterns. Once these fundamentals are covered, we will then focus on more advanced methods of Sketching and Extruding, Lofting, Revolving, 3-point-arc, 3-point-circle, in-sketch Patterning and Mirroring, Offset, use/project and manual constraint application.

We will create multiple parts and learn a variety of mating tools to create assemblies, and discuss exporting for 3D Printing and CNC milling.

MEMBER COST: $250

NON – MEMBER: $350

STUDENT TEACHER (IIATE MEMBER): $150

** Blender 3d – introduction = 20 capacity

This workshop will focus on the basics of how to model and render in Blender. Teachers will be taken through the essential tools and skills required to create objects. Finally, we will take you through the rendering process and teach you how to get the most out of your models so they are ready to be displayed or used in whichever format you choose. Blender is freely available for students and teachers. Participants will receive resources that are currently used by Killara High School to help with stage 5 & 6 Industrial Technology - Multimedia.
