Level 2 Laser Design Studio

Course Description

Teacher in Charge: Ms M. Green

Students are able to design and make what hey would like using the Laser Machine, similar to Level one students can work with Textiles, MDF, plywood, Acrylic, card and paper. Light fixtures and bluetooth speakers are two products that students have developed in 2019. 

What will I learn and how will I learn?
This course focuses on building upon the skills students have learned in Level 1 Laser Design Studio and further develops practical and theory skills to prepare them for NCEA assessments.  They will learn how to use visual communication techniques to create design ideas through drawing and how to develop conceptual designs, including evaluating and decision-making through using stakeholder feedback. 

Conditions of Assessment
All work must be submitted to the teacher by the due date. Any work not submitted for assessment by the deadline will receive a ‘Not Achieved’ grade. If students are sick on the day their work is due, they must get a doctor's certificate. Read over the student handbook for full assessment details.

Submitting Internal Assessment
Assessments are to be handed in at the end of the lesson on the due date.

Resubmissions and Further Assessment Opportunities
Resubmissions can only be offered once and only when small errors or omissions need to be corrected in their work in a short period of time. There is no further teaching available. Further assessment opportunities are not available in every standard.
