This course is an inclusive subject aimed to engage students in technology through a creative practical experience. It is designed to encourage students to appreciate and participate in a number of learning activities throughout the trade area in an encouraging environment.
The models and skill areas to be developed will be negotiated with the class and will include several different aspects of trade technology. Students will investigate, research and develop a broad understanding of how technology works and the equipment used in the area. The initial focus of every task will include a small theory component based on design/production but will then concentrate on learning about the basic aspects of construction, materials and systems used in the production and building processes. Actual products may be negotiated to allow students better access to more preferred areas of skill development.
