Posted by on Jun 16, 2014 in News | No Comments

saltash.net community school values enormously the outstanding range of resources that exist in Cornwall to enhance students’ learning. Making the most of what the Eden Project has on offer recently was the Design and Technology Department who organised a day visit for Year 10 students currently engaged in a project to create innovative lighting designs and concepts for their GCSE coursework.

Speaking after the visit, technology teachers Mr Chris Wells and Ms Jacqui Bartlett said, ‘We had a brilliant and very rewarding day at Eden to study all forms of interesting plants from around the world. This was part of the students’ investigation which it is hoped will lead to inspiring, original, creative and innovative lighting concepts. Eden welcomed our students and are happy for students to display their work at Eden at the end of the task, exam board regulations permitting. The year 10 students had experience of all four bio dome areas and had the opportunity to take photographs and sketches of the dynamic nature in the surroundings. Students were also congratulated on their excellent behaviour by the Eden Project staff and by Ron, our coach driver, from Cottons coach and taxi company, based in Saltash.’
