Design and Technology Program (Secondary School)
Our Design and Technology program is based on STEM themes such as agriculture, biotechnology and transportation, with a focus firmly on technology and engineering.
It introduces students to the concepts of engineering design and the basic principles of technological systems such as control systems and mechatronics. Students apply this knowledge as they explore a range of themes where the emphasis is very much on the application of technology and project-based problem solving.
Students investigate each theme through a range of meaningful activities that lead towards the development of a creative solution to an open-ended project.
The range of student activities is extensive and includes research, discussion, modelling, simulation, practical design and testing.
