Design & Technology

Design & Technology is essentially about providing opportunities for students to develop their capability, through combining their knowledge and designing and making skills in order to create quality products.  The subject also sees the preparation of young people for citizenship in a technological society as it allows them to make judgments of an aesthetic, economic, moral, social, and technical nature. D&T provides excellent opportunities for teamwork.

Design & Technology involves investigations, disassembly and evaluative activities related to products and their applications. Practical tasks take place to develop students’ skills and knowledge related to materials and components; control and systems; quality, and health and safety. The knowledge used in Design & Technology is critical to the sound development of products.

Design & Technology provides opportunities for students to engage in activities that are challenging, relevant and motivating. Through participation in this subject students gain enjoyment, satisfaction and a sense of purpose.
