Design and Technology challenges the pupils to create their own designs based on a series of given design briefs. Focusing on the needs and wants of a target market and choosing appropriate materials for their products, the pupils learn to be innovative designers and problem solvers. Each project begins by following the design process to develop a range of initial ideas into one final design.
Each year group will design and manufacture one electronics based project, and will also use a variety of materials and manufacturing processes throughout all projects. Laser-cutting, 3D printing and heat forming of plastics, alongside key skills such as measuring and marking out, cutting by hand, and finishing techniques, provide the boys with a wide range of practical skills and experience.
