L1 Technology Metal
Teacher in Charge: Mr K. Meyer
A student centred course dealing with real problem solving in a practical environment. The students use technological practice to produce a creative practical solution. They will break the project designing into separate components, then research possible solutions and apply that research to the final practical solution. Students will use a variety of materials.
There is a clear focus on carefully planning out well designed and constructed projects. This is an academic course ideal for students wishing to progress to L2 and L3 Technology, and then possibly university engineering, or any other design or technology based career. The students will gain practical skills from this course.
This course will be assessed to a selection of L1 Technology Achievement Standards. Assessment is a combination of both internally and externally assessed standards. Students will have the opportunity to gain up to 24 credits at L1. Technology is an approved domain subject and is appropriate for students intending to study at university.
Required Prior Learning
Either proven performance in Year 10 Technology and/or at the discretion of HOD Technology.
Cost for course materials that will be consumed or taken home (e.g.: Steel, gas, wood, paints and other project materials). NB: For students who design larger, or more complex projects, the school fee may not cover the total cost of their materials. Any students in this situation will be invoiced later in the year on a case by case basis. $130
