Level 1 Product Technology Resistant Materials

Course Description

Teacher in Charge: Mr I. Tahat

L1 PDT

Technology is intervention by design. In this course, you will learn ways to solve problems through design.  You will experience learning across all three curriculum strands to ensure you become designers of successful, fit for purpose outcomes.  In this course, you will make your products predominantly using Hard Materials such as wood and plastics.


Wakahuia (Gift Boxes) – The Bone Art Place


This course is comprised of two projects that are each taught for half of the year. Both projects focus on very different aspects of design. 

Project One sees students developing and presenting conceptual ideas with a focus on traditional practices.

Project Two is a construction project concentrating on basic woodworking techniques to create a side table.

Both projects culminate in the submission of a design portfolio and technical outcome/prototype. 


In Year 11, you will be predominantly using design to develop outcomes.  You can explore design ideas using either CAD (Techsoft Design, Adobe Illustrator, Sketchup) or Drawing techniques (Sketching, Rendering, Instrumental Drawing). You will also learn how to use CAM processes such as Laser Cutting.


Recommended Prior Learning

Year 10 PDT course is a requirement. Experience in other Technology courses may be considered.
