Course Description

Teacher in Charge: Mr R. Hartlebury

This course would be suitable for students considering tertiary study in design technology or any other field of design.  The programme uses the design process to create a one off proto-type product of the students own choice. Assessments are presented as reports and a portfolio and a prototype. This is an exciting opportunity for students to develop their ability to be innovative and creative technologists using resistant materials.
