Teacher in Charge: Mr K. Meyer
This course investigates the use of a range of hard materials in the context of designing several personal projects. Students multi material design projects will be primarily based around the use of wood and acrylic.
The following tools will be used: hand tools for measuring, marking out & cutting, band saws and scroll saws, wood lathes, flatbed sander, thicknesser, portable electric drills, routers and biscuit cutters.
This subject could lead to careers in Industrial/Product design, Engineering, Wood based careers and applicable trades, Interior Design & Stage and set production.
Materials used may include modified pine, macrocarpa, plywood, MDF customwood, acrylic, finishing products & consumables.
The course will provide students with an excellent foundation for Technology in Years 11, 12 and 13.
Note: Although it is possible to select more than one Technology course, they cannot both be based on using the same material; e.g., selecting both a full year Wood, and a half year Wood course.
