Design and Technology

Design process: think, make, break, repeat.

Designers follow a process to develop and make a product. First in the design process is thinking; this is where designers develop a product outline. To do this, they think about the product, its purpose, the intended users, ideas and inspiration from existing products, the product’s features, the materials and techniques they will use.


In Summer Term, we are practising and learning how to make 3D frame structures using dexterous hands and fingers to help with making and assembling. Our aim is to design, build and test a 3D kite. We could use designs for a tetrahedral kite (made of many combined tetrahedrons) or a box kite.
