Technology is a subject that incorporates human intervention by design. It teaches a broad technological understanding with hard and soft materials such as food, electronics, graphics, robotics and digital technologies. Students learn skills that will offer future opportunities and could create change in the wider community. Technology is also a university approved subject and career pathway, which can be followed up here.
As the world develops, it is increasingly important for students to understand how technological developments impact on society, the economy, and the environment. Whether or not they plan to engage in a career in a technology field or not, all students can benefit from knowledge gained in technology education.
Year 7 and 8 students cover five areas of technology. They spend two terms in each subject during Y7 and Y8. These subjects include; digital technologies, food, product design in multi materials, robotics, fabrics and digital technology. In Y9 and Y10 students can choose to take any of the technology courses as ‘option subjects’. The below pages give more details about each area.
