Design Tech - Term 1
Kia ora koutou,
This term in Design Tech we are exploring how we can sustain and celebrate culture and identity through design. This ties in with the whole school’s inquiry around Ngā Hau e Whā- the four winds that bring us all together.
The purpose of this term’s design process is for students at HIS to connect with their own cultural heritage through exploring the idea of 'identity' through someone in their family. They will ask questions to gather information, research cultural symbols, designs and motifs, explore artist models, develop and refine ideas and ultimately produce a 3D work of art that reflects and celebrates the culture and heritage of their stakeholder.
In Design Tech students will learn skills to enable them to confidently use various machines and power tools to construct a box frame that will house their final design.
