Subject Description

Teacher in Charge: Mr R. Hodson

Material Technology

Prerequisite: 12 Credits Level 2 MTL.

Students will explore the context of service to develop a product using a range of materials and skills. These can include, but are not limited to, CNC routing, electronics, plastics, metal and wood.

During the course of the year, we will cover two projects. The first project will be a wooden toolbox with bespoke handle and dividers. Students will need to work closely to tolerances and will learn new skills that they will be able to transfer to other projects. The second project will be a Service project. Students will be required to find to someone in the community who has a need. They will research, design, create and evaluate the product based on their stakeholders needs.
