All students take part in Specialist classes during their two years at Hutt Intermediate. In Year 7 students have 10 sessions in each Specialist class. In Year 8 students choose two subjects in which they spend up to 30 sessions. Our Specialist subjects are:
What is Technology?
Technology is the use of practical and intellectual resources to develop products and systems. Almost every aspect of our daily life - food, fashion, construction, health care, transport, communications, entertainment, and our environment uses technology.
Why study Technology?
Students learn practical skills as they develop models, products and systems. They learn skills that can effect changes in their own lives and community, and perhaps nationally or globally.
How is Technology structured?
The learning area comprises three strands, which are taught through the subject areas of ICT, Hard Materials, Food and Soft Materials.
Students examine the practice of others and undertake their own. They develop a range of outcomes, including concepts, plans, briefs, technological models, and fully realised products or systems.
Students develop knowledge particular to technological enterprises and environments, and understanding of how and why things work.
Nature of Technology
Students investigate technology and its impact on society.
