Design & Technology
For the Design and Technology (D&T) department, our aim is to develop a cohesive team of D&T staff and bring out the best in all learners by igniting their passion for learning.
To build up the interest of our lower secondary students in D&T, they will learn about research work on existing products, pencil holder and hand phone holder. They will also learn and work on sketching, ideation and developing their own designs. To realise their designs, the students will make mock-ups using cardboards/perforated boards. Finally, the students will make their own artefacts with acrylic or wood using the various machines and hand tools in the D&T workshop
Pencil Holder (Sec 1 Artefact) Hand Phone Holder (Sec 2 Artefact)
For the upper secondary, our school offers to the students D&T elective which is a coursework and theory based (structures, mechanisms and electronics) subject to prepare them for the GCE N and ‘O’ level examination.
Design Thinking Boot Camp at Nanyang Polytechnic 2019
During the March holidays, 13 of our Secondary 3 D&T students participated the annual Design Thinking Bootcamp held in Nanyang Polytechnic by the School of Design.
The 2 days day camp enabled the students to learn the different stages of design thinking and come out with innovative solution.
The students collaborated to brainstorm, ideate and make a prototype based on the theme anti-smoking. They also make videos on how the prototype is used. At the end, the students in their group do presentations to the panel judges.
The students enjoyed themselves during the 2 days camp and learn beyond classroom learning.
Building Design Skills Workshop for D&T Students at Nanyang Polytechnic 2019
During the September holidays, 8 of our Secondary 2 Normal (Academic) D&T students participated the Building Design Skills Workshop held in Nanyang Polytechnic by the School of Design.
In this one-day workshop, the students were engaged from research to initial ideation, sketching, storyline/storyboard development, used their creativity to produce props or models to the final production of a simple stop-motion video animation. The project brief was Recycling – Caring for Our Environment.
One group from our school was selected as one of the finalists in the Top 10 and their work will be displayed at the MOE Design & Technology Fraternity in October 2019.
