Instructional Programme


designtech_prog1 designtech_prog2

Our subject builds life skills through many authentic problem solving opportunities. Visual Intelligence development, through Design Thinking, is embedded in their learning.

Sec 2 Programme – Lower Secondary Design and Technologydesigntech_prog3

Using Design Thinking life skills, the Secondary 2 students have a one year exposure to Technology (Mechanisms and Electronics) that is infused in their learning to handle basic resistant materials (plastics, metal and wood). Visual communication skills using various graphical representations and other design thinking skills are built through students’ design coursework. Using simulated life scenarios, students create physical technological products by applying their learning in light/sound, movement and alternative energy. Ability to hand basic tools to 3D printing will be part of their classroom exposure.

Upper Secondary Design and Technology (Elective)

Students are challenged to think about real-life situations around them as they plunge deeper into Design learning and making. Exposure to other forms of making through other machinery like vacuum forming and blow moulding are part of the Secondary 3 curriculum. 3D CAD training is introduced to both Sec3 Express and Normal Academic students through enrichment activities /elective module respectively.

External Learning and Competitions

The department also has infused learning journeys, elective modules through tertiary institutions and external competitions to further engage and enthuse our creative young minds into the curriculum.
Up to 20 Secondary 3 students will have a chance to attend the advanced elective module at the Nanyang Polytechnic on Aerospace Systems. These students have the opportunity to be exposed to designing, testing and making of RC gliders.

To further engage our young minds, students are also invited to take part in various national competitions like the Bridge building competition for secondary school students and Singapore Polytechnic’s Toy making competition.
