Resistant Materials is the design and making of products using a range of materials: natural woods, man-made boards, plastics and metals. This subject has been designed to encourage students, who want to be able to design and make products with creativity and originality, using a wide range of designing, modelling and making skills.

Students will be enthused and challenged by the range of practical activities possible. They will be encouraged to learn through practical experimentation and modelling. They will design and make products, evaluating and improving on their designs in the process.

During the course students are given the opportunity to design in 2 and 3 dimensions, using 3 dimensional modelling, 2 and 3 dimensional drawing and Google Sketchup. Students will use traditional and new technologies and processes to manufacture their products. They will be expected to design, make, analyse and evaluate products considering the social, economic and environmental impact.
