Design and technology as a subject aims to understand the mechanics of modern technology, as well as to develop a child’s imagination.
During the lesson, children will learn how a particular object works, how it is made, and then, based on the knowledge gained, a child has an opportunity to create his or her own invention or to reflect on how to improve things that already exist in the world.
Due to a large number of different inventions, their variations, companies producing them, children start to understand that design is a very important component. Indeed, between two items, we are likely to choose the one that seems to us more beautiful. Therefore, at design and technology lessons children create, but also work on a design that they think would be successful.
