Department Introduction
WELCOME TO THE Resistant Materials/DEC DEPARTMENT

Please insert a short overview (Check department page on website).

Whilst studying Design Technology pupils will gain an understanding of Researching, Analysing, Designing and Making products, using a variety of materials and equipment. Pupils start with hand sketching moving on to the use of computer based drawing skills including the latest 3D Computer Aided Designing software. The department has a comprehensive P.C. suite which is linked to various Computer Aided Manufacturing devices such as Vinyl Cutters, Laser Cutter and a 3D printer. Once pupils have developed and designed their ideas they have the opportunity to make their artefacts from a range of materials and equipment, using both traditional techniques and the latest CAD/ CAM facilities.

Please do not hesitate to contact M. Grundy should you wish to find out any additional information.
