TECHNOLOGY / SPECIALIST SUBJECTS
Technology is changing fast and our education system needs to grow and adapt with it. We are changing how we equip our children and young people to participate, create, and thrive in this fast-evolving digital world.
What is technology?
At Wairau Intermediate School our technology programmes support the development of gross and fine motor skills along with the skills of thinking, collaboration and team work.
Students learn to understand and follow the design process from start to finish as they develop, test and review models, products and systems while manipulating and creating with a range of materials including wood, metal, plastics, soft fabrics, food and electronics.
