Investigate the suitability of materials, systems, components, tools and equipment for a range of purposes

Elaborations

  • conducting experiments and tests to understand the properties of materials, for example strength, durability, warmth, elasticity (Skills: Literacy, Numeracy, Critical and Creative Thinking)
  • investigating the mass production of products to ensure standardisation, for example students setting up a production line to produce a product for a school fete (Skills: Literacy, Numeracy, Information and Communication Technology (ICT) Capability, Critical and Creative Thinking)
  • investigating the suitability of technologies − materials, systems, components, tools and equipment − when designing and making a product, service or environment, for example a toy for a young child, a composting system for household waste management, raised garden beds for improved access, weaving nets, bags or baskets (Skills: Literacy, Numeracy, Information and Communication Technology (ICT) Capability, Critical and Creative Thinking)
  • comparing how different components interrelate and complement each other in a finished designed solution, for example investigating and playing with joining processes for a variety of materials in the production of common products (Skills: Literacy, Numeracy, Critical and Creative Thinking)
  • investigating local constructed environments to compare how buildings were constructed in the past and in the present and noting innovations (Skills: Literacy, Numeracy, Critical and Creative Thinking, Personal and Social Capability)
  • analysing products, services and constructed environments from a range of technologies contexts with consideration of possible innovative solutions and impacts on the local community and the sustainability of its environment (Skills: Literacy, Numeracy, Information and Communication Technology (ICT) Capability, Critical and Creative Thinking, Personal and Social Capability)
