Level 3 Materials Technology

MTY3
Subject Description

This course culminates 4 years of prior knowledge to develop students learning as closely as possible replicating real life technology practice. Students will be self-directed, imaginative, ethical, collaborative thinkers, with the skills and experiences to work through complex situations and involve others in their problem-solving and solutions. A commitment to independent study and skill development is a must.

Skills will include the implementation of complex procedures, understandings of material development and developing a prototype within a determined context.

Students will undertake a combination of Achievement Standards from Generic Technology and the Specialist Categories of Technological Knowledge and Skills. Students will typically work on 2 major projects over the course of the year. Scholarship can also be attempted in all Technology subjects. 


Contributions and Equipment/Stationery

$130 for materials. Additional cost may be incurred with complex projects.


Entry Guidelines
