Teacher in Charge: Mr J. Norris
This is a full year course in which students design and develop innovative outcomes using mixed materials. Covering areas such as,

- Materials technology
- Basic workshop skills
- Computer Aided Design
The students will complete two manufacturing projects over the course of the year. They will also write a report based on the the materials and processes they used to construct their first project. The report is marked externally and provides the ability for students to gain endorsement in the subject.
