Design Technology - Year 9

In Year 9 students investigate Polymers, (Plastics) and Metals.

They research the two main categories of plastics and look at how different types are suitable for different applications.  They learn about different ways of cutting, shaping and joining plastic and put their knowledge and design skills to the test by designing a themed Plastic clock.

A wide range of industry standard equipment is available to produce their design from CAD/CAM, (2D and 3D computer design, Laser cutting and 3D printing) to vacuum forming, strip heating and mechanical polishing.
