Welcome to PracticalStudent.com

This web site is for students and teachers of the practical subjects.  Our aim is to have a 'one stop shop' for both the teachers and students of practical subjects to be used for resources and as a study aid.

If you would like to see something specific added to the site or you feel you could contribute in some way then give us a shout at any time : editor@practicalstudent.com.  We would appreciate the help.

This website is designed to work in Firefox and Chrome. There are problems with how it looks in Internet Explorer.

Updates 2016

  • I've created a YouTube video channel. I've been messing with the idea for a while now and have at last decided to bite the bullet. I'm still new to creating videos so I do apologise in advance. Currently I have a video of the manufacture of the Pac-Man and some parts for the 2009 OL JC project. Subscribe if you wish to be updated when I put out a new video and if you do comment, please be kind ... I'm very sensetive !! :) I'll probably notify new videos on Twitter as well.
  • Added interactive Ordinary Level Junior Cert Question 1s for 2015 and 2016.
  • 2016 Higher Level Junior Cert Project Solidworks files are now available.
  • 2016 Ordinary Level Junior Cert Project Solidworks files now available.
  • Updated 2016 JC Practical page. Now includes completed model .

All Solidworks files on this site from now on, (all above), are saved in version 2015. If you have not updated and need a way of getting the files to open in an earlier version let me know at editor@practicalstudent.com and I'll sort a solution out for you.
