Design and Technology at Colwich

Good Design is obvious. Great design is transparent.

Joe Sparano


Design and Technology is an inspiring, rigorous, and practical subject that requires designers to show endurance and trust in the design process. At Colwich we encourage children to learn to think and intervene creatively to solve problems both as individuals and as members of a team. We encourage our children to use their creativity and imagination to design and make products that solve real and relevant problems within a variety of contexts, considering their own and others’ needs, wants and values. We aim to, wherever possible, link work to other disciplines such as mathematics, science, engineering, computing and art. The children are also given opportunities to reflect upon and evaluate past and present design technology, its uses and its effectiveness and are encouraged to become innovators and risk-takers.
