Unit 1: Introduction to Graphical Communication
Unit 2: Working in Wood
Unit 3: Working in Metal
Unit 4: 2D Graphics ( the city project)
Unit 5: 3D Graphics ( my dream room)
Unit 6: CAD ( Computer Aided Design)
Unit 7: The Invention Project
Some useful links for those pupils that would like the challenge of developing the app idea that they came up with as part of the Invention Experience .
