Overview of Design and Technologies
Design and Technologies three-strand structure focuses on actively engaging students in creating quality designed solutions for identified needs and opportunities across a range of technologies contexts: Food and fibre production, Food specialisations, Materials and technologies specialisations and Engineering principles and systems. Design and Technologies provide students with knowledge, understanding and skills through which they can safely and ethically create designed solutions. In doing so, the students consider economic, environmental and social sustainability.
The Design and Technologies curriculum can be viewed on the Victorian Curriculum F–10 website
