What is 'Design & Technology' ?

Design & Technology gives you an understanding of the way in which people design and make products that are useful and easy to use. To do this it is necessary to understand the qualities that each material possesses and the ways in which it can be shaped. To design products that are good to look at it makes sense to research what has been done by other designers and what lessons might be learned from the mistakes of others.

It should be possible to build on the successes of past designs too. Only with an awareness of things around us can we be really good designers.

We must be able to communicate our ideas to others easily and clearly. In all options you should develop the ability to draw and develop designs using diagrams, plans and prototypes.
