“CREATIVITY IS INVENTING, EXPERIMENTING, GROWING, TAKING RISKS, BREAKING RULES, MAKING MISTAKES AND HAVING FUN”
Mary Lou Cooks
The Design Technology Department is forward thinking and dynamic, preparing students to participate in tomorrow’s changing technological world. Through design technology, all students learn to be perceptive and knowledgeable users of products, and aspire to become innovators of the future. Design Technology is about developing creative problem solvers who have a clear understanding of materials and manufacturing process so they can develop innovative and original ideas.
Through studying design technology at Royal Liberty School, students cover all the areas of designing and manufacturing from food technology, product design and engineering higher up the school, to an even broader curriculum further down the school with students also studying textiles and electronics.
The Design Technology Department strive to be innovative and forward thinking in the delivery of the subject. This means students are as up-to-date as possible when leaving and have an in depth knowledge, which will help them to become designers and makers of the future.
