Year 9 Makerspace

Subject Description

Makerspaces are collaborative workshops where young people gain practical hands-on experience with new technologies and innovative processes to design and build projects. They provide a flexible environment where learning is made physical by applying science, technology, maths, and creativity to solve problems and build things.

This is a new subject in 2018. The assessments are taken from the Digital Technologies curriculum but students will be learning and using skills from many different areas.
