Resistant Materials / Graphics - Year 8

In year 8 we look to build on the skills and knowledge established in year 7 and make the students become more independent in their designing. Students consider the needs of others and design for a chosen client. Carrying out research and development which helps to improve their skills of discriminating between design choices. In year 8 the students are introduced to Food Technology following a course which involves a half year split; combining Food Technology with Resistant Materials/Graphics. As part of the scheme of work in year 8 there are two main projects in RM and a range of smaller ones in Food Technology:

  • Mechanisms
  • Finishing Materials: Sand Blasting & Laser Etching
