12 Design Technology

Course Description

Teacher in Charge: Mr T. Cook

Design Technology gives students the opportunity to learn how to design, make and test their own creations, acquiring skills and knowledge which are applicable to areas such as product design, furniture design, spatial design and the building and construction industry.

Material and Construction Skills: Students will learn a range of construction techniques using the workshop equipment to make both three dimensional models for testing and fully realised products.

Design: Students will learn how to apply creative and critical thinking to develop purposeful products for others.

Course Content: Students will complete 2 projects during the year:

Workshop Skills: Students will learn how to use a range of tools and machinery in the workshop to implement advanced skills and techniques to construct a product from wood.

Climb: Students will produce a conceptual design for a piece of climbing equipment. Students will learn how to use a range of 3D modelling techniques to assist in the development and testing of the design as well as learn how to incorporate human factors in design.

NOTE: AS 91536 is also used in 12FTE therefore it is advisable not to take 12FTE and 12DET


Course Costs and Equipment/ Stationery requirements

Students taking this course will produce products that will be taken home and therefore will be asked to pay $80 for the cost of materials.
