DVC - Level 2

DVC2
Course Description

Teacher in Charge: C. Lee

This course follows on from Y11, NCEA Level 1 and develops students’ design capabilities. They explore practices specific to a Product (Blue Toothed Speaker) and Spatial (Container Cabin) through two design projects, customised to reflect their personal interests. Students are challenged to examine solutions to these design problems in greater depth. The work done in these projects contributes, to internally assessed standards and two external portfolios.
