Dorrigo High School

Faang It!

Students in Stage 4 use the concepts of science, mathematics, engineering and technology to design a carbon dioxide powered car. They investigate the design process and manipulate numbers to develop a working model.
Students participate as individuals in the design process, building prototypes and in the pretesting stage of their cars.
Science lessons are programmed around the concept of friction, mass, force and aerodynamics. Students also discuss variables and the scientific method.
Mathematics lessons focus on area, scale, shape, rates and graphical presentation.
Technology lessons focus on design, materials and the construction phase.
