Design Technology in Scissett Middle School allows pupils to be creative problem solvers, both as individuals or as members of a team. The subject allows them to participate in a world of rapidly changing technologies. They respond to challenges by determining need and constraints, developing a range of ideas and making quality products. The department is committed to the continued development of a pupils’ design and making skills, through a range of basic hand tools, machinery and CAD/CAM activities. Pupils also develop their understanding of aesthetics, ergonomics, social and environmental issues as well as current industrial practices.
Design Technology provides pupils with a practical application of knowledge that they have acquired in subjects such as Mathematics, English, Science and Art.
Pupils currently participate in a half yearly rotation between the technology disciplines – Food and Textile Technology and Resistant Material Technology.
