Design Technology at Eastbrook

“Design is not how it looks and feels, design is how it works.” 

Steve Jobs

Design and Technology build a child’s perseverance and resilience as well as harnessing their creativity. At Eastbrook, children are given the opportunity to look at the world around them and evaluate existing inventions. They are able to design and create their own products by selecting appropriate materials and explaining their creative choices.

Design and Technology encourage children to reflect and talk about why a product has been built in a specific way. It allows children to develop an appreciation for the way the world is designed around them. At Eastbrook, children understand the importance of Design, in their lives today, and for their future.

Core Eastbrook Learning Value: Perseverance
