Invite children to become inventors during this year’s D&T Week
Introduce something a little different to this year’s D&T Week (22-26 June www.data.org.uk), and D&T sessions in general, by encouraging children to explore and design products from fast cars to fashion items.
Remember, all practical D&T activities should be based on a product that has to be designed using appropriate and authentic materials for a specific end user and purpose. Products should be evaluated at each stage of the design process. Children should also recognise the importance of their design fulfilling its intended purpose to meet the requirements of the programme of study for D&T. The result – real-life products for real-life situations.
