Through the study of Design and Technology, students develop the ability to identify, create, initiate and develop products, processes and systems. Students learn to use tools, materials and systems safely and competently to complete a product. They also analyse the impacts of technology, including social, environmental and sustainable consequences.
The focus area for this subject is Systems and Control Products; students use devices such as electrical, electronic and mechanical components, including microcontrollers, to design and make products. Students produce products that demonstrate the knowledge and skills associated with may using control systems, processes, and materials such as electronic components, programmable chips, circuitry, robotic components, gears, levers, etc.
