DESIGN TECHNOLOGY 21F - Full Year

Course Description

Teacher in Charge: Mr G. Case

Design Technology at Level 2 extends the skills and knowledge of Level 1 with a focus on designing for a particular client. Students will be expected to apply their personal design skills to a situation that also requires careful consideration of their client. There is more flexibility in Level 2 Design Technology and students will be able to work on individualised projects that are restricted only by their creative thinking skills and enthusiasm.

As some of the coursework is online it is highly recommended that students bring an appropriate device to class.
