Y9 Design students completed a project this year which gave them the challenge of upcycling old shipping pallets into new, usable products.
From Monday 13th June until Wednesday 15th June, a selection of these will be on display in the CAB atrium. The items will be available for sale to raise money for a NIST service partner, Second Chance Bangkok (www.scbkk.org/about-us.html).
