The technology design work of two Beaconhills College graduates will feature in the upcoming Top Designs exhibition at the Melbourne Museum.
The projects by Lachlan Toth and James Wilkinson are recognised as amongst the best in the state for 2017 Victorian Certificate of Education (VCE) Year 12 students.
For his Systems Engineering project, James designed a racing car simulator that has two degrees of motion and features a custom made steel frame, power supply and circuit board.
James was lucky to have the support and background skills of his Systems Engineering teacher at the Pakenham Campus, Peter Van Waart.
Mr Van Waart is in his first year of teaching after running his own business building V8 supercars and world rally cars for Subaru in England. Four of Mr Van Waart’s Systems Engineering students at Beaconhills scored 40/50 or higher in the subject.
Berwick Campus students Lachlan Toth was excited that the chair he made in Product Design and Technology was chosen for the exhibition. His teacher was Scott Colquhoun.
Lachlan said his task was to create a modern rocking chair for a mother-to-be, which he did using a veneer wood bending technique and combining it with a cowhide sling and headrest.
The Top Designs exhibition is at the Melbourne Museum from Saturday 17 March to Sunday 15 July.
