Students describe the contributions of designers over time. This includes designing products, services and environments that make people’s lives easier, safer and more comfortable. They will explore how materials and design features can be used to produce designed solutions that meet the needs of the community and the environment. Students will be involved in the design and technology processes and productive skills. They will investigate existing designs, explore needs for new designs, generate ideas, select, test and use materials to make design examples, evaluate their ideas and processors and make changes where applicable. Following the design process, students meet the identified needs of users through the creation and modification of products.
