Scholarship and Extension Digital Technologies

Course Description

Teacher in Charge: Mr J. Creighton

This course focuses on developing a Scholarship Submission for Technology.

Burnside has been successful in Scholarship Technology. In 2021 8 students achieved at Scholarship Level and Technology has had an Outstanding Scholarship for the last 3 years. This course is designed to support students looking to achieve at Scholarship Level.

Students that are interested in this course will already have developed specialist skills and knowledge and are looking to focus on refining these to deliver a comprehensive robust outcome.

New Zealand Scholarship assessments enable candidates to be assessed against challenging standards and are demanding for the most able candidates in each subject. Assessment is by the submission of a portfolio or report of work produced throughout the year.

Scholarship candidates are expected to demonstrate high-level critical thinking, abstraction and generalisation, and to integrate, synthesise and apply knowledge, skills, understanding, and ideas to complex situations.

New Zealand Scholarship provides recognition and monetary reward to top students in their last year of schooling.

Students will develop a reflective report based on their experiences while developing an outcome. Students will showcase their journey from idea conceptualisation, skills development, testing, trialing,  evaluating and reflection.

Students will have access to Laser cutters, 3D Printers, Vacuum Formers and CNC machining.
