Technology GCSE Resistant Materials at Prince William School
Design Technology (Resistant Materials) is a broad material based course with an emphasis on learning by doing. It centres mainly on the designer, manufacturer, and consumer; you and me; looking at the production and technology of everyday objects which most of which you are already familiar. You will be encouraged to make your own designs in a range of materials throughout the course. In Year 11 you will need to identify a problem of your own for your Major Project, which will make up 60% of the final assessment. The Design Department is well equipped with a suite of computers, lively and interesting design studios, well-equipped workshops and enthusiasm for the subject. Computers are a vital tool used by designers and their use is encouraged at all stages. There are facilities for computer-aided design (CAD) and computer aided manufacture (CAM). Apart from the timetabled lessons, the facilities are made available to you during some lunchtimes and after school so that you can develop your skills in the practical areas.
