Year 9 Wood metal technology

Course Description

Teacher in Charge: Mr C. Simm

This course follows the technology curriculum and involves following a brief to design and build a prototype to solve a problem. This course is for students who are interested in how things are made, like thinking creatively and enjoy the hands-on process of making and building out of wood, metal, acrylic and composite materials to name but a few. 

Testing and trialling your ideas to see if they work combined with problem-solving is the key to this course. This course is primarily workshop based and along the way you will learn how to safely use a range of powered and unpowered tools in this environment. So if you enjoy being creative and using your hands while learning new skills then this is the course for you.
