Technological design is constantly changing the world we live in.  Many people make a career out of designing and creating innovative new products such as jewellery, food, gadgets, furniture, clothing, sports gear, and fashion, art pieces, robotics, hair and cosmetics, floristry, special effects, engineering products, environmentally friendly and sustainable products, up-cycling to simple things like candles and lip gloss and the list goes on. What would you like to design and create in the world of Technology?  This is your chance to direct your own learning, link with experts outside the classroom to design and make a product of your choice. You will exhibit your work at the end of the year at a special event.  Learning the design process will give you an excellent ground for pursuing a career path in any Technology area.
