S3 Design & Manufacture Chocolate Moulds

We have established a tradition for the S3 BGE Design & Manufacture classes to finish the third year course with a chocolate project!

Pupils design and make MDF formers that they then vacuum form to produce plastic moulds. This is a technique used in lots of different areas of industry for mass production. Our classes then spent a period in Home Economics melting chocolate and using their plastic moulds to produce solid chocolate versions of their designs – it was very successful!0406B
