Year 11 Engage With Markers and Industry Professionals at SHAPE

Year 11 Design & Technology students recently travelled to the Walsh Bay Arts Precinct to attend seminars and see the ‘SHAPE’ Exhibition. This exhibition displays students’ exemplary 2023 HSC major projects from Design and Technology, Industrial Technology and Textiles and Design.

Senior marker and guest speaker Ms Wagner spoke to students about what markers are looking for in their Major Design Project (MDP) and folio. She discussed the marking guidelines through examples of student work, and provided advice on choosing a Major Design Project. 

In our second seminar, students heard from and engaged with industry professional, Sydney-based Product Designer Zachary Hanna. Zachary spoke about his education at UTS, travelling to work in Milan and his passion for furniture and lighting. Zachary has worked in numerous design consultancies, winning numerous awards. 

After the seminars, students had time to unpack what they had learnt, examine the range of different projects, view the works closely and read sections of the exhibited design folio. The opportunity to engage with markers and industry professionals at the exhibition was a great experience for Waverley College Students.
