Former Forbes High School student Isaac Wren’s 2015 HSC work is now on display at the Sydney Powerhouse Museum. Wren, a Year 12 Forbes High School Graduate, is involved with the Shape 2015 exhibition at the Museum, which started on February 27 and ends on May 8.
His Year 12 Major Works project was a seven level game with coloured cubes to be picked up and placed on corresponding colours. The project will also be displayed later in the year at the inTech 2016 exhibition at Sydney Olympic Park.
InTech 2016 is the annual exhibition of outstanding Major Design Projects developed by 2015 HSC Industrial Technology students and runs from Friday 24 June to Sunday 26 June 2016.
In 2015, over 2500 students and their teachers from across NSW visited the In-Tech exhibition in Sydney. The Powerhouse Museum exhibit features a limited number of projects from industrial technology, textiles and design, as
well as design and technology. His work was one of just 25 out of a massive 9000 projects picked for the Powerhouse Museum exhibition.
Mr Wren’s mother, Monica Wren, said it was a very exciting time for their family to be involved with such a big exhibition. “It was such a fantastic experience for all of us, not just Isaac,” she said. “To think that little Forbes High School is represented at the Powerhouse Museum, and that the Forbes community helped to raise a technological genius is just beyond words. We don’t even have ADSL at home!”
Mr Wren told The Forbes Phoenix last month it felt great to have his work on display at one of Australia’s most recognisable museums. “It’s pretty cool. I wasn’t really expecting it,” he said.
