Technological and Applied Studies

Technological and applied studies (TAS) is mandatory for all students in Year 7 and 8. Students can also select from a range of elective TAS subjects.

In TAS, students develop knowledge, understanding and skills through a design and production process using a range of tools, materials and techniques in theory and practical lessons.

The continuum of technology learning is:

  • mandated from Kindergarten to Year 8 through Science and Technology K-6 and Technology Mandatory Years 7-8 syllabuses
  • based on students becoming increasingly sophisticated in their ability to apply knowledge, skills and understanding to design and produce solutions
  • optional for student specialisation in high school through a range of syllabuses addressing particular technologies and aspects of design.

About Industrial Arts at Camden High School

Industrial Arts courses have a unique focus on creativity, innovation and the successful implementation of innovative ideas. Students will investigate the importance of evaluation, the role of computer-based technologies, management, communication and collaborative design, as well as exploring current and emerging technologies.

A variety of tools, equipment and processes will be applied throughout the development of practical projects. Through the completion of these projects, students are provided with the opportunity to develop specific production and manufacturing skills using a variety of materials.

Our students have to opportunity to use ICT to research and document existing design ideas, the work of Engineers and project production processes.

Industrial Arts is inclusive of the needs, interests and aspirations of all students. It provides opportunities for students to develop projects in areas of individual interest, to discuss equity issues related to design, production and manufacturing in the Australian society and to consider careers in the fields of design and manufacturing.
