LA Code: 
Learning Area: 

Individualised Designing or Manufacturing learning projects.

During term two students have identified their own design issue and have been either:
Investigating, generating and developing design ideas for outcomes that meet the requirements of their won design brief; or planning the manufacturing of an outcome that will meet this brief.

Term three involves students realising their designs either through manufacturing it from materials or developing and refining the design using visual communications techniques.

Depending on individual pathways students can expect to be engaged in the following learning experiences: research and analysis of designers and design work, digital design modelling, using workshop tools and machines, evaluating and documenting their design and manufacturing processes in a portfolio.

This course allows for a range of pathways in the design and technology curriculum area and due to this students need to be capable of self managing and should be prepared to attend mentoring times each week as well as 2-3 hours outside of class time.

Their may be a cost per student depending on individual projects.
