THE DESIGN AND TECHNOLOGY DEPARTMENT

Design and Technology is all about finding solutions to problems, where:

'Good design is like a mirror, reflecting the needs of its users'

We strive to improve existing products whilst creating new ones in our pursuit to make them better for us, easier to use and to have less negative impact on the environment.

Some of the products we design can improve lives & even save lives..

Which-ever field of design you study you wish to specialise in at Stradbroke, be it Graphics or Resistant Materials related..

we will never run out of things to design.

 

To Succeed in Design You Need to

 

Be imaginative

Be a ‘free-thinker’

Be enterprising

Be innovative

Be tenacious

Be an effective communicator

Believe that there is always a better solution

The Design Technology Team at Stradbroke High School strives to introduce students to the World of Design, an exciting World of Possibilities and Invention where everyone has a part to play through the skills they develop and offer in moving the country and the world forward.

 'Having Ideas but being unable to express them is like having no ideas at all.'

Pericles 490-429BC

Acquiring the Skills to Succeed

Being able to express your ideas as a young designer is fundamental, which is why we put so much time and energy into developing skills in communicating your ideas to others.

 

Knowing what sustainable materials are available to work with and developing the skills to manipulate them allows you to create prototypes. Through the prototypes we create we can evaluate, re-think and improve in our pursuit to create successful designs. Mistakes inevitably lead us forward.

'Genius is one percent inspiration, ninety-nine percent perspiration'.

Thomas Edison

 

We hope you can see evidence of these principles within the projects we offer at Stradbroke!

The SHS Design Team

Mr P Gionis & Mrs M Crawley
