  • TECHNOLOGIES

    DEPARTMENT

    EMERALD SHS

  • YEAR 9 TECHNOLOGIES SUBJECTS

    • Materials and technologies specialisations (elective)

    • Design and Technologies (elective)

    • Engineering principles and systems (elective)

    • Digital technologies (elective)

  • Materials and technologies specialisations

    Materials

    COST OF SUBJECT: $50

    TOPICS COVERED: Students are involved in a broad range of traditional,

    contemporary and emerging materials and specialist areas that typically involve

    extensive use of technologies. Students develop the confidence to make ethical

    and sustainable decisions about solutions and the processes used to make them:

    Sem 1 Sem 2

    • Serving Tray

    • Solar Powered Car

    • Technology Holder

    • Mobile movement

  • Assessment

    Students create design ideas, identify product processes and

    justify decisions in a portfolio of their product. They select and

    use appropriate technologies skilfully and safely to produce

    high-quality designed products, evaluating final product.

  • Additional Information

    • EXCURSIONS: Local Trade Workshops

    • PATHWAY: Can lead to Engineering Skills, Furnishing Skills, Industrial Graphics and Design

    • PRE-REQUISITE INFORMATION: Nil

    • MATERIALS NECESSARY FOR THIS SUBJECT: Exercise book, red and blue pens, coloured pencils, ruler, eraser, pencils, glue stick, display folder, highlighters.

  • Design and technologies

    Graphics and Design

    COST OF SUBJECT: All costs covered by the Student Resource Scheme.

    TOPICS COVERED: Students are involved in graphical communication of ideas

    and concepts. They produce rendered, illustrated views for marketing and use

    software to produce views of products:

    Sem 1 Sem 2

    • Cam Toy

    • Furniture item

    • Engineering item

    • House plan

  • Assessment

    Students plan and manage projects using a design digital

    portfolio. Students create designed and establish criteria for

    success, including sustainability considerations, and use these

    to evaluate their ideas and designed solutions and processes.

    They create and connect design ideas and processes of

    increasing complexity and justify decisions.

  • Additional Information

    • EXCURSIONS: Local Council, Drafting Business

    • PATHWAY: Can lead to Engineering Skills, Furnishing Skills, Industrial Graphics and Design

    • PRE-REQUISITE INFORMATION: Nil

    • MATERIALS NECESSARY FOR THIS SUBJECT: Exercise book, red and blue pens, coloured pencils, ruler, eraser, pencils, glue stick, display folder, highlighters.

  • Engineering principles and systems

    COST OF SUBJECT: All costs covered by the Student Resource Scheme

    TOPICS COVERED: Students are involved in how forces can be used to create

    light, sound, heat, movement, control or support in systems. Knowledge of these

    principles and systems enables the design and production of sustainable,

    engineered solutions.:

    Sem 1 Sem 2

    • Cam toy

    • Robotics

    • Engineering item

    • Gearing

  • Assessment

    Students will progressively develop knowledge and

    understanding of how forces and the properties of materials

    affect the behaviour and performance of designed engineering

    solutions. Students create design ideas, identify product

    processes, justify decisions and evaluate final product in a

    portfolio of their product.

  • Additional Information

    • EXCURSIONS: Local Trade Workshops

    • PATHWAY: Can lead to Engineering Skills, Furnishing Skills, Industrial Graphics and Design, Science, Physics.

    • PRE-REQUISITE INFORMATION: Nil

    • MATERIALS NECESSARY FOR THIS SUBJECT: Exercise book, red and blue pens, coloured pencils, ruler, eraser, pencils, glue stick, display folder, highlighters.

  • Digital Technologies

    COST OF SUBJECT: All costs covered by the Student Resource Scheme

    TOPICS COVERED: Students consider the capacity of information

    systems to systematically transform data into solutions that respond to the

    needs of individuals, society, the economy and the environment :

    Sem 1 Sem 2

    • HTML coding

    • Digital hardware (cameras)

    • Coding robots

    • 3D Printing

  • Assessment

    Students plan and manage digital projects using a design digital

    portfolio. Students design and evaluate user experiences and

    test results. They evaluate information systems and their

    solutions in terms of risk, sustainability and potential for

    innovation and enterprise. They share and collaborate online,

    establishing protocols for the use, transmission and

    maintenance of data and projects.
