Design & Technology
Mission

Design & Technology (D&T) is to introduce the basic concepts of design and technology to the students of junior secondary level. They are motivated to perform design work with different materials and to apply their knowledge of “design” and “technology” in problem-solving activities. They learn to think and intervene creatively to improve quality of life. They must look for needs, wants and opportunities and respond to them by developing a range of ideas and making products and systems. They combine practical skills with an understanding of aesthetics, environmental and social issues, functions and industrial practices. As they do so, they explore & experience the dimension of aesthetic and creativity. Through the subject, all students can become discriminating and informed users / consumers of products, and become innovators.
 

Curriculum Goals

The goals of D&T are to develop students’:

  • ability to employ graphical communication techniques as an integral part of design experience;
  • ability to design with consideration of related design factors;
