Course Description

Teacher in Charge: Gavin Sheppard

Design Technology focuses on the design of products and systems. Using sketching, modelling and computer design skills, students will develop their own designs to solve a range of problems. Students then use resistant materials (wood, plastic) to develop and construct their own designs. Elements of electronics design may also be incorporated.
