“Design is the human power to conceive, plan, and realise products that serve human beings in the accomplishment of any individual or collective purpose.” (Richard Buchanan, Carnegie Mellon University)
Design & Technology is a dynamic and engaging learning area where students apply knowledge and skills to solve practical problems. The emphasis is to foster creative innovation, and much of the learning will occur in the design studio, food laboratory or workshop environment using state-of-the-art equipment such as 3D printers, laser cutters and CNC plasma cutters. The wide variety of experiences offered in the Design & Technology learning area allow students to express their ingenuity, creativity, intellectual abilities and skills.
