Design & Technology

Our approach to Design & Technology

Design & Technology offers great opportunity for cross curricular learning, blending creativity and invention with concepts from subjects including Science, Maths and Computing.

We have created a series of exceptional projects, based on the D&T Association’s ‘Projects on a Page’ scheme, that you’ll be as excited to teach as the children will be to learn!

Our projects encourage children to look at, evaluate and adapt existing products and systems, working creatively to design their own.

Our demo videos lay out how to create everything from mechanical toys to medieval castles, so you are fully prepared before stepping into a classroom of excited children!
