    A TWO DAY Professional Development event HOT will run at Lucas Heights Community School on Thurs 18th & Fri 19th July. (Second Week of school holidays.)

    Registrations extended to Fri 5 July  

    This course was priority registration for rural teachers, but is now opened to all.

    If you are a rural-based teacher and wish to register for any course, please contact Andrew Fairbank (details below) to register.

    Hands On Tech (HOT) are two day immersive sessions that allow you to learn new techniques with experts, required materials.

    'Hands on Technology' Two day course will contribute 10 hours of NESA Registered PD addressing 6.2.2, 6.3.2, 7.4.2 from the Australian Professional Standards for Teachers towards maintaining Proficient Accreditation in NSW.  


    1. Advanced Joinery - $750

    NOTE THAT THIS COURSE HAS A WAITLIST AND IT CURRENTLY

    HAS ONE SPOT LEFT.


    This course looks at developing moderate joinery skills through making a jig that can be used to maximise student time in construction of their own projects. The jig made of F27 Hardwood, is effectively a false work top that fits into standard workbenches vices (project size 1500x500). Construction skills involve Dovetailing, Mortising and a variation on Breadboard Ends. Participants will receive KDHW, Tail Vice, Veritas Dogs and a specialist chisel.


    2. Arduino for Beginners - $450

    Teaching Arduino requires a working knowledge of:

    - coding in C++, and;
    - basic electronics

    This course focuses on both of these and delivers the knowledge required to deliver stage 4 projects with confidence.


     Note: Participants will need to supply
    • a laptop with wireless access and
    • arduino IDE installed.

    • Note that DET laptops must be pre-loaded with this software AND all drivers.
    • An old (eg:2008 DET) laptop is perfectly OK. Linux loaded on this machine will run arduino with all drivers, and revive a machine that is no longer supported by the DET. (This must be done prior to arrival.)

    3. River Pours - $550

    **No priority registration - first in, best dressed**

    Have you always wanted to know the Tips & Tricks of doing River Pours?
    How to get rid of those pesky air bubbles in Pour on finishes?
    Or how to achieve great finishes using recycled timber?

    What products and requirements for internal and external conditions?

    This workshop will give you all the Tips & Tricks and correct products to do River Pours and more. By doing your own projects you will be loaded up with heaps of techniques for working with recycled and new timber for making unique woodwork projects. You will gain Tips & Tricks on how to take very ordinary pieces of timber from fence palings to slab timber and turn them into one-off masterpieces.

    The plan is for you to bring manageable pieces of 2nd hand timber with you to play with over the two days. We will do the pouring / Epoxy coating on Thursday and finishing on Friday.


    We will provide you with a list of goodies (Do not sweat if you do not have timber – we can supply) and tools you will need to bring once advised you have selected our knowledgeable workshop.


    Note: please bring your own PPE if you are doing workshop activities, this includes:

    • Safety glasses
    • Ear muffs 
    • Solid shoes
    • Appropriate workshop clothing
    • If you have long hair - it must be tied back

      In this course participants will learn how to use a vacuum bag to make a skateboard and to create and apply a marquetry design to the board. At the completion of the course you will take away on your very own skateboard deck complete with your own exotic marquetry veneer pattern on it. The additional cost covers the supply of a Thin Air Vacuum Press Kit, mould and pre cut Canadian Rock Maple veneers. This will give you a completed deck and the equipment to manufacture boards at school as well as simple but useful moulds for vacuum forming, including projects beyond the skateboard. You will also need to bring your own block plane. As this will be used in the construction of the board. 

      Sketchup $450

      Do you think that SketchUp is a ‘Toy’ CAD program that no professional would ever touch? Did you know that NASA use SketchUp? So do many architectural and engineering firms. This is freeware. Don’t know how to start using SketchUp? Have you played around with SketchUp but feel that you have missed some basic tips, shortcuts, page set ups?

      Art Metal Work/Jewellery - Stage 4 and 5 $500

      This course is intended for those who have never done silver jewellery making before and are looking to introduce it as a Stage 4 option in Technology Mandatory. You will learn how to make a plain silver ring, a twisted ring and a pendant in sterling silver. This is taught from metalworking principles and can be taught in a metalwork room with basic tools.

      Taking your laser to the next level $400

      In this course you will be introduced to laser cutting and how it could be implemented into a Stage 5 Project, which you will create and take with you, there will also be demonstrating and displaying examples of how to take laser cutting to the next level (how to get that perfect gap-free fit when laser cutting). In this course you will be shown:
      - how to use a range of programs such as Photoshop and Illustrator (for laser cutting) along with the laser cutting software to manipulate and refine your design to get that perfect fit, from the raw image you have drawn or downloaded, into the perfect veneer
      masterpiece.
      This workshop will be presented by Tony Wright. Tony is considered one of the leaders in his field for creating elegant laser cut marquetry designs on skateboards and timber boxes. He has over 20 years of experience as a Coordinator of Industrial Arts and as a teacher of Design and Technology. He is passionate about inspiring students with "Kid cool projects" that utilise the technology that is becoming more embedded into our curriculum and will teach you the skills to take your students projects to that next level.

      If your school doesn't currently have a laser cutter, then this is a perfect time and opportunity to complete a laser inspired project to take back and show your Principal, the Executive and the P & C about the fantastic opportunities and projects that could inspire your students and introduce them to the Technology of the 21st Century. It will also be a great opportunity to collaborate with local schools and fellow teachers who may be willing to assist you and your senior students to incorporate these skills and techniques into their projects.
