Invention and Design

For any people out there who are interested in how what’s taught in schools affects the uptake of Engineering at University level, there’s an interesting article on it in the Times today that I’d recommend taking a look at. James Dyson has written a piece for the opinion section on the Design and Technology curriculum overhaul and the emphasis it should place on academic rigour. In his words, ‘grilling tomatoes won’t train new engineers.’

Did any of you study DT at school? Do you think it should focus on basic engineering or on life skills like cooking?
