Design and technology helps to prepare children for the developing world. We encourage children to become creative problem-solvers, working individually and as part of a team. Design and Technology helps all children to understand the forever changing world of technology and become potential innovators. It should assist children in developing a greater awareness and understanding of how everyday products are designed and made. Throughout their projects, the children reflect on, learn from and evaluate present and past design technology, its uses and effects. Children are also encouraged to embrace their creativity and gain confidence with handling new tools and equipment in a safe environment.
