Course Description

Y10 Design Technology - Course Content

In Design Technology students develop skills by designing and making products.

Students are expected to design and make a high-quality product that they can take home with them.

Students will develop skills in how to investigate and analyse existing products, materials, and tools, and how they can use this towards their own creative designing and making.

Students will learn practical skills in the use of workshop and design tools, including using Computer Aided Design and Manufacture, such as Laser Cutting and 3D printing. 

Students will apply their research and practical knowledge to a design and make project, developing their design skills by producing a range of design ideas, which they refine and develop, through drawing, computer and physical modelling, into a final made prototype.
