L2 Technology Wood

Course Description

Teacher in Charge: Mr K. Meyer

A student centred course dealing with real problem solving in a practical environment. The students establish a client for whom they produce a creative practical solution by using technological practice. They will break the client’s problem down into key factors, then research possible solutions and apply that research to the final practical solution. 

Students will work predominantly with wood with the option to use other materials. There is a clear focus on carefully planning out well designed and constructed projects. Construction of scale models and the use of design software is also encouraged. This course would be ideal for any student wishing to either progress to higher education, become an accomplished designer or undertake any trade or technology based career. The students will gain practical skills from this course.

This course will be assessed to a selection of L2 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 L2. Technology is an approved domain subject and is appropriate for students intending to study at university.
