Project work in the HSC course is intended to reinforce the content covered in the other topics in the course. Students need to experience working collaboratively with their peers and others, as this is common in the computing field beyond school. In order to be able to develop software successfully, students need to be able communicate well with others. Project work gives students these opportunities.
The development of project(s) will build students’ understanding of the content dealt with elsewhere in the course and should be integrated throughout the duration of this course.
