Level 1 Resistant Materials Technology 101

RMT101
Course Description

Teacher in Charge: J. Crawford

Recommended Prior Learning

Year 10 Wood/Metal Technology preferred or with approval of the HOD of Resistance Materials Technology.


This course which follows on from Year 10 Wood and Metal Technology.                       Students will work with a range of hard materials such as solid timber, timber products, metal and acrylic.

Students will gain through experience an understanding of the properties of materials and develop the skills to manipulate them to produce high quality outcomes. 

There is also a Design component offered as part of RMT101 where Students have the opportunity to build their own designs.

Resources include traditional timber and metal workshop environments as well as laser cutter and 3D printers. 

Students will be assessed on their understanding and execution of basic technological processes and their application of health and safety within a workshop environment. Resistant Materials Technology is an approved University Entrance subject.

Note: To take this course as well as DTI 101, students must obtain prior approval from the HODs of both subject areas. Refer to the standards that are doubled up in other areas.
