Design and Technology is about ‘making and doing’ and recognising the role people play in designing and creating new technologies to meet a need or solve a problem.
Design and Technology covers engineering, information and communication technology, multimedia studies, electronics, robotics, food and textile studies. Students develop the skills to look critically at technologies and issues arising from their manufacture and use. As students ‘make’, they test their ideas and thinking against reality by applying skills and techniques in safe and responsible ways. They learn to be creative, designing solutions to problems. Through this they learn that they can effect change.
