Design and Technology


Design & Technology


Design and Technology is an inspiring and practical subject which incorporates creativity and imagination. Pupils follow a process to design and make products that solve real and relevant problems within a variety of contexts, considering their own and others’ needs. Through this process they acquire a broad range of subject knowledge and draw on other subject areas such as mathematics, science, computing and art. Design and Technology enables pupils to learn how to take risks, and be resourceful and innovative. Through the evaluation of past and present products, pupils develop an understanding of the impact of D & T on daily life and the world around them.
