DESIGN and TECHNOLOGY

Lower School

Year 8

This semester course is an exciting and satisfying program of learning which develops creativity in technical graphics and the production of projects in the wood and metal workshops. Students will also learn the basic principles of design through a variety of projects.

Year 9

Working with Metals
Students will work with machinery and hand tools to develop the skills to cut, shape and join metal. A large part of the course involves learning the different welding processes. Students will learn how to use the metal bandsaw and cut-off saw as well as hand methods to cut metal. Processes include Brazing, using the oxy acetylene equipment.

Working with Wood
Students will develop their hand skills and as the semester progresses more machines will be used. Wood turning on the wood lathe, wood carving and wood joint construction are new areas to be learned this year.  There will be the opportunity to make a free choice project.

Electronics
This course offers an exciting and challenging introduction to the world of electronics. Students will develop their understanding of electronics by undertaking a variety of practical exercises that integrates the use of matrix boards, LEDs, variable resistors, and other specialised electrical components. Projects may include a hand steady game, electronic eye, flasher dasher, LED chaser and more complicated robots.

Year 10

Working with Metals
Students will work with hand tools and machinery to learn the skills to cut, shape and join metal. The course involves revising and developing advanced skills in the different welding processes. Students will design and construct their own projects using the skills they have learned.

Working with Wood
During this course students initially complete set models to ensure they have a sound understanding of general workshop practices as well as proficiency in using general hand and power tools, workshop machinery and wood working materials.  Later in the course students will be able to specialise in areas like wood carving, wood turning or general bench fabrication.

Electronics
Students will begin by building several simple circuits on matrix boards and then they will progress to project work where they will select and build/design their own projects. Programming of picaxe microcontroller chips in the production of robotic and other projects is integral to this unit.

Senior School
