 T1 School Production Technology
In a world filled with increasing promotions and ways of getting a message across, it is important for students to understand the language of promotions and the different audiences which exist. By preparing promotional material for a school concert, students learn an essential skill for work in the future.

 T2 Welcome Home Dinner Party
Preparing for a welcome home dinner provides the ideal opportunity for a wide range of technological activities. The variety of activities soon becomes apparent during the friends' discussions and preparations for the central character's welcome home party.

 T3 "Rename the Bicycle Part" Gameshow
This gameshow is a fun way for students to study the bicycle and its parts. It also leads on to suggestions for further activities such as identifying types of bicycles and in groups, designing bicycle parts or products.

 T4 Supermarket Technology
We all take for granted the technology used in supermarkets. This classroom-based play makes students aware, by means of an interview with a checkout operator, of the technological aids in a supermarket.

 T5 Special-purpose Clothing
Technology plays an important part in the design and production of clothing. This classroom-based play set in a clothing store refers to the many requirements necessary, and considerations made, before clothing is produced.

T6 Food Containers and Packaging
Food containers come in all shapes and sizes, materials and disposability. Characters in this role play, set during a school lunch break, discuss their different lunches and the associated food packaging.

T7 Traffic Systems
Students perform characters who are concerned about traffic flow and the relationship between traffic flow and pedestrian safety.

It's not until some-one experiences a burglary that security becomes important. After having possessions stolen a student discusses different home security systems with friends.
