Design and Technology 2023 - 2024

Mrs Kitchin

Welcome to our Design & Technology page.  This was originally asssigned to our Science page but we realised that we do so much, that it deserves it's own place on our website!

Here at St James, we use our Theme work  as the stimulus to develop our design skills. This can range from: designing, building and evaluating rollercoasters; to constructing stable bridges that are able to support great forces. 

We also take an active look at our community and ensure that our children learn about how DT is used in nearby industry.  Recent visits to West Lakes Science Park,Whitehaven Marina and The Beacon Museum make sure that DT is relevant to their community and is engaging.  Our school has invested heavily in new technology and, where possible, we make connections with Computing, Science and use a range of online design apps to support our work.
