Junior Cycle Wood Technology

Junior Cycle Wood Technology

In Wood Technology students will explore the natural and made world through the medium of design, seeking out opportunities to creatively and innovatively apply the material/resource in making and shaping their environment. The sustainable use of and management of this natural resource is important as the world faces the challenges of the 21st century. Learning in this subject will be active and student centered, with learners collaborating in the pursuit of knowledge and in the safe management of the Wood Technology classroom environment. Through the challenges posed by the design-based philosophy of the subject, students will develop the relevant knowledge, understanding, skills and values to bring ideas from conception to reality in a way that will allow them to be expressive, creative and innovative. The brief for the project is set and marked by the State Examinations Commission (SEC). The project accounts for 70% of the final SEC grade with the written examination accounting for the other 30%.
