Happenings: Grade 10 STEP
By: Lauren-Ashleigh B.
Throughout the last few weeks our grade 10 technical class have been busy building shelves. These shelves required students to use many different tools and equipment within the shop. The students all started with a raw piece of wood, which they transformed into unique and individualized shelves.
The construction required a number of steps including selecting an appropriate design, cutting the wood to the desired lengths, and finally assembling the shelf. Some of the machines that we used included a: planer, jointer, band saw, table saw and hand sander. Throughout the woodshop experience we learned many different skills and techniques that we can now apply to real life scenarios.
The technical classes at Lockerby always provide an amazing opportunity for hands on learning. We are always challenged to apply classroom instructions in a practical way. I know I can speak for the rest of the class when I say that I thoroughly enjoy STEP Design Tech and the many opportunities we are able to have in this class. We are looking forward to the new activities provided by this class as we continue to learn in this enriching environment.
