In our technology and design classes, students not only gain knowledge of materials and processes, but also develop design and presentation skills through an investigative, open-ended pedagogical approach. They investigate, design and create products, always keeping in mind who will use them.
Throughout this process, our students gain an understanding of the work and role of professional designers and of the manufacturing industry as a whole. Students are taught to evaluate and analyze their own development, the use and life-cycle of products, and the impacts of products, materials and manufacturing processes on society. We also expect our students to incorporate and build on the skills acquired in other subject areas.
