Design Technology aims to foster among students the skills required to use new and existing technologies to create new products, services and systems. Modern technology involves the application of scientific discoveries to produce useful artifacts. In creating new technologies to solve problems, designers in turn impact on the rate of scientific discovery. Through DP Design Technology, students achieve a high level of design literacy through the development of critical-thinking and design skills which they can apply in a practical context. With enhanced understanding of design and the technological world, IB Design Technology students contribute to our shared guardianship of the planet and create a better world.
