D and T Projects

Here is a list of all of my Design and Technology projects to date, although I may have forgotten a few!

They are in approximate order of age/complexity starting with the simplest but some projects span a wide age range and, as with most DT projects, there’s always someone who comes up with an idea that allows it to be taken to another level. That’s what is so great about this subject!

There is also a lot of crossover with Science and many of the projects lend themselves to the development of Science Investigations.

It’s amazing what you can do with plastic modeling foam, wooden dowels, card, paper tubes, tape and string etc.!
