IGS Design and Technology students nominated for SHAPE

Congratulations to our Class of 2020 Design and Technology students Angus Dowling and Otis Taylor who have been nominated for HSC showcase SHAPE.

The annual exhibition of a selection of exemplary Major Projects developed by HSC Design and Technology, Industrial Technology and Textiles and Design students will be on display at the Powerhouse Museum of Applied Arts and Sciences (MAAS), from 26 February to 9 May 2021.

Angus, inspired by alternative sources of protein to help combat global warming and population increase, designed a cricket farm.

“The cricket farm for sustainable protein is a solution that I have created, which is designed to create a healthy and sustainable protein that is better for the environment than current meat and meat alternatives,” Angus said.


Otis saw the opportunity to address the darker side of beach tourism, to better communicate with tourists who are not native English speakers, and hopefully prevent further drownings.

“My project takes form as a multilingual beach safety animation aimed to help reduce this concerning number of deaths at Australian beaches,” Otis said.

The students have thanked IGS Teacher Isobel Green for all her hard work and dedication in supporting the students throughout the year.

The nominations follow other great HSC showcase news for the Class of 2020, including ARTEXPRESS nominations for Eliza Brundson and Eve Mitchell-James, and eight OnSTAGE nominations, including two selections
