With guidance from students at Salendine Nook High School, 120 Year 5 children used computer-aided design and computer-aided manufacture
(CAD/CAM) and a 3D printer to build cars, which were then drag-raced on a 12 metre track in the school hall.
George Stephenson's Year 8 engineers, aged 12 and 13, used Computer-Aided Design (CAD) and Computer-Aided Manufacture
(CAM) to create their vehicles, which have the ability to travel at speeds of up to 25 metres per second.
Peter Evans, senior chief maxillofacial prosthetist, said the unit had earned a worldwide reputation for integrating digital computer-aided design and computer-aided manufacture
in the field.
