  • New case studies – including innovations in sustainability such as non-animal meat and the Seabin project for cleaner oceans – help students place design in context, understand the design process, and explore emerging technologies. 
  • Practical and theoretical activities develop students’ analytical skills in evaluation, planning and decision-making, and provide additional guidance as they prepare for their major design project. 
  • Valuable time-saving planning, classroom and assessment support for teachers in the Teacher Resource Package include suggested responses to textbook activities and workbook tasks, PowerPoints and teaching plans.

  • Design and Technology: Stage 6 Second Edition continues to be the only comprehensive textbook and workbook series that covers the complete NSW Stage 6 syllabus. 
  • This highly visual text has been written by a very experienced and creative author team who are experts in their field and across multiple business disciplines. 
  • Chapter summaries and extension tasks include exam-style questions to help students fully prepare for their HSC exams. 
  • Available as an optional bundle with the student text or for purchase separately, the workbook is both a study guide and workbook in print format. It offers a range of tasks to complement each chapter of the textbook as well as advice on the major design project, and sample exams to support students as they prepare for their final assessment.
