Student Inventions in Design Technology

04 June 2009

Design Technology (DT) is a course offered at the IGCSE level and in the IB Middle Years Programme (MYP). It is designed to inculcate the problem solving skill in students. As part of the course requirement, students have to create a solution to a perceived need. It starts with a situational analysis which leads to product specifications. Through an iterative process, various designs are generated by the students and rated based on the specifications. A plan for production is developed and at the end the product is evaluated for use and functionality. Students are also expected to provide supporting written documentation.

2008-09 brought forth a number of student "inventions." Take a look at some of those projects.
