New technology at Mulwaree High School

Oct 4, 2011 by

Mulwaree High School has recently installed a computer-aided plasma cutter thanks to a grant from the Veolia Mulwaree Trust.  The machine is the first of its kind to be put into a NSW Public School. The sculpture, engineering and technology classes are already starting to learn the CAD program and applying it to their work and look forward to developing its potential to other areas within the school and the Goulburn region. Pictured right are students from the Mulwaree Sculpture Project with some of the work they have produced.

High School Industrial Arts teacher, Bill Dorman, would like to encourage interested schools to contact him in regard to making the technology accessible to students from throughout the region.

“It is especially applicable to the senior students in industrial tech, art and engineering areas and adds a whole new dimension to the sort of work that can be done. I will be running a workshop for interested teachers from the area later in the year to show them the potential of the machine and to work out ways of accessing it,” Mr Dorman said.

“Anyone who would like to see or buy some of the amazing works that the students have made can join us at the Goulburn Regional Art Gallery for our annual Sculpture Exhibition and Auction. The exhibition will open on the 24th of November and close with an auction of the works at 6pm on Thursday the 8th of December,” Mr Dorman said.
