DESIGN & TECHNOLOGY - ELECTRONIC PRODUCTS GCSE

Mission Statement

GCSE Design and Technology: Electronic Products enables students to design and make quality electronic products with creativity, originality and flair using a wide range of electronic components with appropriate materials to package the electronic circuit. The packaging of the electronic circuit can include individually designed cases made from a range of resistant materials, textiles, card or recycled materials.

This two-unit specification requires students to develop their ability to consider sustainability and environmental impact on their designing. It also provides students with the opportunity to design and make an electronic product using new technologies and modern electronic devices. Technical and mathematical ability and a desire to solve technical problems is essential.

This course has 60% controlled assessment in order to recognise the importance of practical skills within this subject and 40% examination.
