Teacher in Charge: Mr C. Burr.
Level 1 Engineering contains Level 1 and Level 2 Achievement Standards. In 2024 the continued inclusion of a Level 2 Achievement Standard, in which students have successfully undertaken for a number of years, provides consistency and surety in a NCEA transitional year. The course is designed to provide a broad range of engineering aligned knowledge and skills that are transferable to both tertiary and vocational pathways. Students will gain specialized knowledge and experience during the design, planning and construction of predominantly metal based projects.
The course is a blend of practical and written activities and has an emphasis on personalized learning. This course has a maximum of 3 Standards and students have some flexibility to replace standards with ones that better reflect their project, abilities and personal interests
Students predominantly design and manufacture a drift trike but can also produce their own project that reflects their own interests and abilities.
