L3 Product Development Design Metal

Course Description

Teacher in Charge: Mr K. Meyer

A student centred course dealing with real problem solving in a practical environment. The course is centred on the National Evolocity competition. This evolves designing and building an Electric Car and competing against other schools in the area. They can then go on to the national competition if they qualify. 

They will work in teams breaking the task down to its key factors, then research possible solutions and apply that research to the final practical solution. The students will work predominately with metal with the option to use other materials. There is a clear focus on carefully planning out well designed and constructed cars. This is an academic course ideal for students wishing to progress to university engineering, or any other design or technology based career. The students will gain practical skills from this course. It is open entry.

This course will be assessed to a selection of L3 Technology Achievement Standards. Assessment is a combination of both internally and externally assessed standards. Students will have the opportunity to gain up to 20 credits at L3. Technology is an approved domain subject and is appropriate for students intending to study at university.
