Hello Everyone!

The second upload to PrintLab Classroom in March is a creative lesson called 'Make a Personalised Egyptian Obelisk'. The 2 part lesson can be incorporated into the study of history, religious education, computing, art & design and design technology.

In this project students will:

- Develop an understanding of hieroglyphics - the formal written language of Ancient Egypt
- Use a simplified hieroglyphic alphabet to decipher Egyptian words
- Understand the basic architectural design of Egyptian obelisks
- Use knowledge of hieroglyphics to create a personalised obelisk using CAD software and 3D printing
