Materials Technology Wood

Junior Certificate Materials Technology (Wood) provides students in the junior cycle of post-primary education with an opportunity to explore their role in making and shaping their environment. It involves the use of a design process, which is a central feature of the subject, through which students undertake tasks that require the use of practical problem-solving skills and the application of scientific and technological knowledge. Materials Technology (Wood) is assessed at two levels, Ordinary level and Higher level, by means of a written examination paper and a student project.


Note: Specifications for the technology subjects will be revised in phase 6 of the Junior Cycle Developments, with the changes commencing in 2019, for certification in 2022.
