Stage 4 – Technology (Mandatory)

The Technology (Mandatory) course is to develop students’ ability to design, produce and evaluate quality solutions that respond to identified opportunities and needs. It enables students to justify solutions and to responsibly, safely and creatively use and select materials, tools and techniques.

Students demonstrate the ability to research and extract information from a variety of sources and a willingness to use experiments and tests to enhance the development of a design project. For each design project students will develop a design folio as a document that provides ongoing evidence of the application of a design process and the specific technologies used in this process.

Students will utilise a variety of information and communication technologies (ICT) within each design project. Each project the students develop is selected from a chosen area of study.

The three areas of study are- Built Environments, Products and Information and Communications and may include some of the following design specialisations:

  • animal production technologies
  • control technologies
  • electronics technologies
  • food technologies
  • graphics technologies
  • information technologies
  • media technologies
  • metals technologies
  • mixed material technologies
  • model-making technologies
  • plant production technologies
  • polymer technologies
  • textile technologies
  • timber technologies

Subject materials’ contribution for the Technology Mandatory course is $50.00 in Stage 4.

Special Requirements are that students must accept the need for safe and disciplined behaviour and be prepared to accept all workshop safety rules. The provision and wearing of protective equipment is mandatory.
