Design and Technology

Design and Technology education involves two important elements – learning about the designed and made world and how things work, and learning to design and make functional products for particular purposes and users.

In Design and Technology, children acquire and apply knowledge and understanding of materials and components, mechanisms and control systems, structures, existing products, quality and health and safety.

Children are encouraged to be creative and innovative, and are actively encouraged to think about important issues such as sustainability and enterprise.
