Design Technology

Dulwich Prep London boasts a well-resourced multi-media workshop where boys are encouraged to explore and express their creativity through a broad range of three-dimensional design and make assignments.

Design Technology is taught through a combination of teacher-led projects and problem solving activities which provide the boys with a repertoire of skills. The boys work on solo projects to develop independent thinking in research, design, evaluation and modifications or in design teams, sharing ideas, knowledge and expertise in order to build cooperation and reinforce learning. 

From carpentry to metalwork, mechanisms to electronics, on drawing boards and computers, Design Technology projects increase in complexity as the boys’ experience and understanding of materials, tools and processes develops.  Incorporating new processes or systems into each new project enables the boys to enhance their understanding of the design processes and hone the skills needed to meet the challenge of bringing their ideas to reality.
