Design Technology is the creative application of skills and knowledge to design and make good quality products. It is important that children learn to view the world critically and discuss the ways to improve the quality of everyday objects, materials and environments. They must consider various needs and options, the ability to produce economically, within appropriate time scales, and the marketability of such effort. Children learn to discuss, design and draft plans, select suitable materials and construct artefacts using a variety of tools, techniques and materials, including food and fabrics. Testing and evaluating the effectiveness of their designs forms an invaluable part of the learning experience.
