Course Description

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,

- Research and design
- 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.

Note: This course leads to university entrance approved subjects.
