Year 9 Technology Hard Materials

Course Description

Teacher in Charge: Mr K. Meyer

Year 9 Technology Hard Materials will be 4 periods per week for one term, with Electronics courses beginning in Year 10. A focus is placed upon the experience of working effectively both as an individual and as part of a team.

A range of suitable workshop machinery, hand tools and processes are then utilised which involve the safe use of age appropriate equipment.

All students get the opportunity to take a concept and adopt a problem-solving approach to explore their own design ability. 

The Technology curriculum at this Junior level is about students exploring their own ability to create quality outcomes including items of their own design.
