Engineering and DT

This subject has an emphasis on Engineering as children are encouraged to think creatively about rapidly changing technologies and how they can influence them.

Blundell’s Prep School has a light, modern, well-resourced DT room, which offers an excellent environment in which the children can be both confident and innovative. The children are offered opportunities to think creatively about our rapidly changing technologies.

Working as individuals and as part of a team, they identify needs, wants and opportunities and respond to them by developing ideas and making products. Through design and technology, the children can become discerning, innovative and informed users of products.

Aims of the DT Department

  • To develop children’s designing and making skills.
  • To develop their knowledge and understanding.
  • To develop the children’s capability to create high quality products through combining their designing and making skills with knowledge and understanding.
  • To nurture creativity and innovation through designing and making.
  • To explore values and attitudes to the made world and how we live and work within it.
