Students in year 9 and 10 take Hard Materials Technology for two terms as part of a four term option rotation. The balance of the year, alternates through one term courses of both Soft and and Food Technologies.
Students are learning skills in furniture making. They have learnt about the benefits of working as a team in production work and have looked at Henry Ford as an example. Following a brief and specifications, the students have been placed into teams to make 2 stools each, one is for themselves. For their own stool they can incorporate some of their own design features.
Wall Chess Set
