Design and Technology

Design & Technology provides opportunities for students to use design and systems thinking to generate ethical and innovative designed solutions for sustainable futures in several technologies contexts.  Students will select and manipulate a range of materials, systems, components, tools, equipment and machinery, creatively, competently and safely.

Design & Technology enables students to combine creative thinking and practical problem solving skills.

In Design & Technology students will focus on the Human Centred design process to investigate, design, make and reflect on projects from a given design brief. At each level of study students will work independently and collaboratively to build on concepts, skills and processes developed in previous courses to produce designed solutions of increasing complexity.
