Design Technology (DT)

"You can't use up creativity.  The more you use, the more you have."

Maya Angelou 

Why do we teach design?

• To develop the creative, technical and practical expertise needed to perform everyday tasks confidently and to participate successfully in an increasingly technological world.

• To build and apply a repertoire of knowledge, understanding and skills in order to design and make high-quality prototypes and products for a wide range of users.

• To develop critical thinking, problem-solving and analytical skills by critiquing, evaluating and testing their ideas and products and the work of others.

• To understand and apply the principles of nutrition and learn how to cook.
