"Creativity is allowing yourself to make mistakes.  Design is knowing which ones to keep."

Scott Adams

"Design is where science and art break even."

Robin Mathew

Whether it be an iPod that is easy to use or a desk that is just right for the home computer, good design makes things easier and more enjoyable to use. Design and Technology lessons give students the opportunity to investigate how well familiar products and objects work and who they are really aimed at. By answering questions such as “Is this the right tool for the job?” they learn how to solve practical problems skilfully, creatively and with imagination.
