Rustic coffee tables and a retro gaming table created in Resistant Materials practicals

Fifth Years at St George's College have created and displayed a wide range of high quality working prototypes in their Resistant Materials practicals over the past year.

Resistant Materials (Technology) teacher Mr Facey was thoroughly impressed with the work done by all students and had this to say on the success of the prototypes created:

"The boys and girls have all worked safely and diligently towards producing a range of good quality working prototypes throughout the year. With two hard working groups producing 16 desk lamps, two coffee tables and a retro gaming table they should be rightfully proud of their efforts. Although all were produced to a high standard, I have selected two which I feel deserve particular mention here:

Firstly, Sophie Hill’s rustic coffee table was produced with skill, accuracy and with a great deal of autonomy within the workshop. Its stain and wax finish really added character to the aesthetics.

Secondly, Will Taylor produced an oak based angular bespoke design that can easily be adjusted and focussed in a range of directions. The design is simple but effective using materials with laser cut rings to help focus the white light omitted from the LED cluster.

I’m really looking forward to reading the students' testing and client feedback and evaluation section of the course work."
