The John Peel Centre for Creative Arts (JPCCA) appointed our year 13 Engineering Students to design its proposed urban renewal and recycling project in the alley adjacent to their building in Stowmarket.
The Green Alley project brought together a team of local businesses, engineering students and nursery children to create an interactive, imaginative and innovative green space for all to enjoy.
Students from One designed eco-friendly innovations transforming this disused alleyway into a whacky, fun, sustainable space where the Centre can grow vegetables and herbs in interesting ways and provide an outside haven for visitors.
Last week students showcased their designs at One in the purple zone. To help reduce the impact on the environment, the installations were powered by natural energy and are made from second-hand or donated materials.
Paulin Goonan, teacher of Engineering said ‘Todays Engineering Project Display was a huge success, the feedback is invaluable to students to enable them to complete their projects and ensuring that they achieve all the BTEC criteria for this unit. It was also a great opportunity to showcase what the engineering students have achieved and for other teachers and students to find out what engineering is all about! We are looking forward to seeing the installations in place at The John Peel Centre next week.’
