Design and Technology
A high quality design education will enable students to be autonomous problem solvers demonstrating analytical skills, curiosity, creativity and a passion for creating designs which have never been seen before.
They will gain an understanding of the world around them and how every product has had critical decisions made to form the final outcome from shape and form to function and material properties. Students will be introduced to the battle between form and function understanding the key to good design is finding balance between the two. Ergonomics, anthropometrics and inclusive design will be identified and evaluated for use as a key factor in all design work and decisions which informs good practice.
Knowledge of design history and key influencers will broaden their design thinking and evaluating products from the past and today will expose them to how design techniques have evolved.
Students will be given the platform to be experts in their design story with the ability to communicate their thought processes and intentions through writing, discussion, recording and refining of ideas in sketch and model format and final 3D outcomes.
