Discovery College Design Options:

Year 10
MYP Design courses at Discovery College are delivered through focused tasks, where students develop knowledge, skills and understanding and through full design and make projects that follow a design process model.  Students investigate problems, develop ideas, plan responses and then create and evaluate their solutions. The use of ICT is thoroughly integrated into technology classes as research tool, design and manufacturing aid and also through the student’s use of web-based  design portfolios. Students will select two options from the four offered bellow.  Every effort will be made to give students their preferred choice, but this cannot be guaranteed as student health and safety will take priority.
