At Bevington, we refer to Design and Techology as Engineering.
Engineering forms part of our unique STEM Curriculum and is integrated with Science, Technology and Maths in coherent learning experiences. The Engineering element of our STEM curriculum asks children to design solutions for real-world problems. This aspect allows our pupils to develop their inherent curiosity, creativity, organisation and logic. Engineering covers a number of disciplines, including resistant materials, food technology, textiles, and graphic design. We place an emphasis on the design element of engineering, and expect pupils to plan their projects carefully, analysing existing products (including disassembly), creating prototypes, carrying out market research, and creating detailed graphical designs. Each project enables pupils to create a quality product which they are then able to evaluate.
