RICHARD the sheep, pictured, and a modern exercise machine were just two of the exhibits at the Hinchingbrooke Design Technology Exhibition last week.

A total of 1,200 students from Hinchingbrooke School visited the exhibition which consisted of 100 different gadgets and devices devised by the pupils.

Year seven and year eight pupils produced toys, which included names such as a Jiggle Bug and a Grabber.

One piece of GCSE work consisted of a rocking horse in the shape of a sheep called Richard designed by student Richard Webster. Another piece of GCSE work was an exercise machine that you sit on and pull the cables to lift your own body weight.

The best 15 exhibits will be picked to go forward into the Rotary Club's young design awards, which will take place at the end of the month.

Dave Leater, design technology teacher at Hinchingbrooke, said: "I was amazed by the quality of the exhibits this year. They seemed to amaze me every year. It's a good opportunity for the students to see one another's work and it is a good recruiting tool as well."
