Subject Description

Teacher in Charge: S. Anderson.

Materials and Design Technology is a practical subject that focuses on designing, making and evaluating projects using a range of materials, tools and processes. 

Students will gain workshop skills through the use of tools and materials to make projects. Projects are designed, made and evaluated to a brief.  Emphasis is placed on design, drawings, problem-solving, hand skills, craftsmanship, finishing and evaluation of finished work.

Students make practical workshop projects in materials (wood, metal, plastic, etc.) using processes (marking out, cutting, machining, shaping, jointing, casting, finishing etc.) to achieve a final product. Students need to keep detailed records (written and supported by photos) of their project development to show evidence of testing, research, critical thinking and evaluations.
