Contexts

Stage 1 Design, Technology, and Engineering is organised into four contexts: 

  • Digital Communication Solutions
  • Industry and Entrepreneurial Solutions
  • Material Solutions
  • Robotic and Electronic Systems. 

The contexts provide opportunities to develop design thinking, to investigate engineering solutions, to develop a plan, to realise the solution, and to evaluate the outcome. The context is chosen by the school to meet student needs and interests, taking into account the resources available.

Each of the four contexts provides a separate enrolment option for students.
