Materials

Students design and produce a Money Box. This project introduces new skills of laminating materials, complex design and material selection. Finishing, application of various surface finishes and surface preparation. Students put these new skills into action, in the design and production of their own Money Box. Production of an electronic portfolio in which students investigate, explore ideas and follow a design process in response to a design brief. Students are required to evaluate the final solution’s effectiveness for specific purposes and audiences.

 

 

 


Engineering

Students design and manufacture a Racing Car using rubber bands as the propulsion system. This project introduces new skills of shaping materials, complex design and material selection. Finishing - surface preparation and application of various surface finishes. Students put these new skills into action, in the design and production of their own Racing Car. The effectiveness of the design will be tested on a 20m race track. Students are required to evaluate the final solution’s effectiveness for specific purposes and audiences.

Graphics

This fun course gives students the opportunity to work on small 2D and 3D projects. Students get to interact with computer software to enhance their ideas and designs (i.e. sticker and logo designs) including the use of 3D printers. Teachers will mentor the students through this course, they don’t have to be good drawers to select this subject. Students have the opportunity to work with exciting design software.
