In Technology subjects, students combine practical and technological skills with creative thinking to design and make a range of products from a variety of materials. At Woonona High School, Technology is more than just a subject. It is a place where project management skills, portfolio skills, and independent learning skills are honed.
Students are introduced to the different technology workspaces and taught how to use the wide range of equipment the school possesses; from sewing machines to scroll saws, welders to laser cutters. As they progress through school the opportunities increase for students to learn more advanced processes and use more technical equipment such as the centre lathes, band saws, and computer-aided manufacturing equipment. Students learn to use current technologies and have opportunities to observe similar processes in the industry. In addition, students are challenged to consider the impact of future technological developments and their impact as designers on the environment.
Beyond the curriculum, a range of exciting design and engineering based opportunities enable our students to further develop their skills. Our talented, committed and multi-skilled team of Technology teachers offer a wide range of exciting extra-curricular activities each year.
During Technology lessons at Woonona High School, students are encouraged to think creatively, solve problems and work productively in teams and with independence. We are supporting the development of our future designers, engineers, and entrepreneurs through a curriculum which seeks to engage and inspire.
