The department nurtures students to be able to demonstrate the ability to handle authentic-based situation, integrate varied skills such as resource management and evaluation skills and create effective solutions.
A two year programme which allows students to undertake a series of projects progressively to consolidate their learning and to acquire new knowledge and skills as well as harness their innate curiosity to create through design-and-make activities.
Students shall develop:
For Secondary One, students will learn to appreciate the making of ‘Display Stand’ and ‘Wooden Block Toy’ which is based on an authentic situation in the Singapore context. For Secondary Two students, they will learn to design and make an ‘Identification Light Device’ and a ‘Balancing Holder’ based on design opportunities. Through these teacher-controlled structured projects, they will experience the design process and understand the use of different materials, mock-ups and technology to make the product.

1. Basic Thinking
2. Basic Technology
3. Project-driven Knowledge and Skills
4. Design Thinking
