How We Fixed The Fairy Tales

During Term 2, the 5/6/7 and 2/3 classes buddied up for a 3D Printing project.

Their brief: in small groups, identify a fairy tale and in it, a character who has a problem. Design a 3D object to solve this character’s problem.

The 3D objects designed are very creative. It was fascinating to watch the objects become a reality thanks to the school’s amazing 3D printer. The objects were coloured by their creators.

They will be displayed in the front office for the first week of Term 3 if you would like a closer look.
