Design and Technology 

Year 7 and 8

Year 7 and 8 students will focus on using technology to design, produce and evaluate solutions for identified needs and opportunities. Students will also investigate the ways in which products, services and environments evolve locally, regionally and globally through the creativity, innovation and enterprise of individuals and groups as well as effectively and safely use a broad range of materials, components, tools, equipment and techniques to make designed solutions

Year 9 and 10

The students will get the opportunity to critically analyse factors, including social, ethical and sustainability considerations, that impact on designed solutions for global preferred futures and the complex design and production processes involved. Students will also work flexibly to safely test, select, justify and use appropriate technologies and processes to make designed solutions, evaluate design ideas, processes and solutions against comprehensive criteria for success recognising the need for sustainability and also develop project plans using digital technologies to plan and manage projects individually and collaboratively taking into consideration time, cost, risk and production processes.
