Level 2 Product Design Technology

Course Description

Teacher in Charge: Mr J. Norris

This is a full year course in which students design and develop an innovative outcome based around electronics and using mixed materials for the construction. It will be covering areas such as:

- Research and design 

- Materials technology 

- Electronics
