This course teaches students the process of using critical and creative thinking skills when designing to meet specifications. It is a project based course, which allows students to receive credit for both ADST 9 and General Fine Arts 9. Starting with a guided project, students work through the stages of design and develop their final project for Careers 9. Then, in the second part of the course, students choose different design scenarios from a range of topic areas such as foods, textiles, marketing, music, drama, and art and apply the design process that they learned in the guided project to complete their chosen design scenarios. Most of these projects are linked to learning outcomes in the CORE academic Grade 9 subjects as well, so students may count their project work in Problem Solving by Design 9 for their academic courses, too. Students also have the option to earn tech certificates in Food Safe Level 1, Typing, and Coding. Finally, students may choose to design their own passion project if they wish. Previous students have designed and coded a computer game, designed and decorated a cake, designed and produced a music video, written and illustrated a children’s book, etc.
