Design and Technology

Design and Technology activities are often presented as problem solving tasks which challenge children and offer them the chance to find solutions in practical ways. Children plan (design) a solution before a practical attempt is made to solve a problem.

Prior to design there is often scope for research and discussion of the problem and identification of possible solutions. Testing, modification and evaluation of the solution is an important part of the learning process. Design and Technology projects include such tasks as designing and making a puppet with moving parts, researching, making and testing (tasting!) a healthy sandwich or designing and making slippers. Young children may end up making a new chair for Baby Bear or a shaker to use in their musical activities.
