Teacher in Charge: Ms J. Carson-Iles
Resources are finite, we have a limited amount of carbon, wood, plastics and metals on the planet. We will explore where materials in the natural world come from, how they grow or are made. We will make sense of the atomic structure of materials, carbon cycle, develop our skills, design and modelling in the workshop. We will be working practically in the lab and workshop recycling and reusing materials to build mini projects. Students will generate plans, create designs, learn skills and build. In the lab we will experiment and investigate with materials we are using. The concepts of sustainability and reusing will be important in this module. At the end of this module we will apply our knowledge and skills in an inquiry.
