Technology is purposeful, practical, challenging and fun and exciting!  Studying Technology will build on what students have learnt about designing and making before. Students will use knowledge, skills and understanding to design and make new and better solutions to real problems working with materials that they choose to work with. Technology prepares students to participate in todays and tomorrow's rapidly changing technological world:
