In this course students will design and produce a product for a hypothetical client, from a specific design brief, using laser cutting technologies. Design work will focus on the materials used, functionality, aesthetics and the constraints of the brief.  A variety of graphical representation techniques will be used to generate and clarify ideas to create design solutions.  These may include annotated sketches and scaled technical drawings.  Students will use relevant design computer software and create prototypes that they will test and evaluate.

Design in Year Eight helps to develop computer skills and allows you to be creative while also creating a functioning product. Design is a great opportunity that I encourage all students to try.
