Students will apply their knowledge of the technology process to investigate an issue and develop an outcome which meets the requirements of an identified stakeholder or client. The research into their issue may include working in consultation with other learning areas of the school.

Students will be required to present a portfolio documenting their process and providing evidence of their learning. Both practical product and portfolio contribute to assessment.
