Year 10 Technology Design Studio

Course Description

Teacher in Charge: Ms M. Green

Course Outline

There is a growing demand from industry for students who are both creative and technically literate. We start looking at design in its basic form. Students design, model and produce a product from a brief. They learn to communicate design ideas, and cover the technology design process, computer modelling, freehand and technical drawing and prototype production.  Students can choose from a range of products from picture frames, t-shirt transfer design, jewellery and a sign back lit by LEDs. Students may come with their own needs and design ideas..
