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.
Technology Mandatory (Secondary – Stage 4)
