The Roaches introduces 3D technology!

Lou Billington, our Resistant Materials GCSE teacher, along with Adam and Dave has created the first 3D product with our new 3D printer.  You may have encountered this technology on the news and been amazed.  Until last year it was largely out of reach of all but laboratories and military institutions but it is becoming more widely used for the bespoke requirements of hospitals and industry.  Introduction of this technology to the Roaches School represents a huge advance in our future ambitions.  Well done to Lou and the lads, we're all genuinely flabbergasted!  This simple teacup is a modest but dramatic first rendition.
