The Junior King’s Design Technology department prepares pupils to be creative problem solvers, to work as individuals and as members of a team, to participate in tomorrow’s rapidly changing technologies and to enjoy expressing their ideas using a wide range of media. Students are engaged in using computer aided design and manufacture, wood, metal, plastic and electronics to communicate their unique ideas.
During their design and technology experience students combine practical skills with an understanding of aesthetics, social and environmental issues and industrial practices. As they do so, they reflect on and evaluate present and past design and technology, its uses and effects.
At Junior King’s students are given the opportunity to develop a variety of practical techniques as they explore their imaginative thinking. Working in stimulating contexts they engage in a continuous course of personal development, learning to use today’s technologies so they can participate in developing tomorrow’s.
