Technology

TechnologyThrough Technology, students use their creativity and imagination to design and make products that solve real and relevant problems within a variety of contexts which must consider both their own and others’ needs and values. By doing this, they acquire a broad range of subject knowledge and draw upon other subject disciplines such as maths, science and art. Students learn how to take risks, becoming resourceful, innovative, cooperative, curious, creative and capable. They are asked to evaluate both past and present design and learn how to develop a critical understanding of the impact that design has on daily life and the wider world. We believe that these are key skills which students can take with them later in life and which they can apply to other contexts and settings.
