DESIGN & TECHNOLOGY A2 LEVEL
F523 (Designing, Making & Evaluating)
The majority of Year 13 is devoted to designing,making & evaluating a product of the students choice. The work covered in Year 12 provides the foundation for this.
The students shows their design thinking in a 40 - 50 slide "Powerpoint" e-folio that uses digital images, video, audio (and as you can see below ),2D & 3D CAD work to show how the final design has developed.
Students then make (in the most appropriate Resistant Material) a full working prototype of their design.
