Design and Technology — Material Products

Students develop the ability to initiate, create and develop products or systems in response to a design brief. They learn to use tools, materials and systems safely and competently to complete a product.

Students analyse the impacts of technology, including consequences for individuals, society and the environment. They use a range of manufacturing technologies such as tools, machines, equipment, and/or systems to design and make products with resistant materials.

Contexts include metals, plastics, wood, composites, ceramics, and textiles.
