Tech: Pewter Casting | First Session

Today, we had our first session of tech. For tech this term as year 7's, our focus was on Pewter Casting. Pewter, is a type of metal, that can bend easily when thin. It can be melted into a liquid form in about only 1 minute, and dries in about 5. What we did for this tech session, was to think of designs to make a cast out of, and give to someone we respected. We were also given a demonstration by our tech teacher, Mr Grunden. Mr Grunden is a cool teacher, he informs us about what to do, and adds in quite a few jokes when doing so. I really liked this first session, although we didn't do much, it was still fun and exciting to see the pewter casting method in action.
