Design and Technology (DT)

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

- Maya Angelou

Why do we teach DT? 


  • 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 to design and make high-quality prototypes and products for a wide range of users 
  • To critique, evaluate and test their ideas and products and the work of others
  • To understand and apply the principles of nutrition and learn how to cook.
