Technology in Art

17th November 2016

On Saturday 12th November students from Chatham and Clarendon Grammar school hosted 'Technology in Art' an educational 3D printing studio at the Turner Contemporary Gallery in Margate. The event was open to the public and aimed at 8 - 14 year olds.
 
The studio was a brilliant success. 1846 members of the public interacted with the studio. Elements of the studio included a 3D printed robot competition, 3D pen activities, 3D scanning, and talks on the Ultimaker 3D printer. Thanks must go to Create education for sponsorship and the stars of the show the students who were outstanding ambassadors for our school, the 3D printing community, and the local creative community.
