This Technology course explores the process of development that turns a 2 dimensional design into a 3 dimensional one. The course structure follows that of a wide range of industries including the film industry and computer gaming when a new idea or product needs developing. For example students will produce a range of ideas then reduce that to one, explore a range of materials and methods to make it, make a model to work out any problems, then produce it full size. Students will be made aware of a wide range of influences, styles of drawing, sculpting materials and methods.
