|Use research and exploration, such as the study of different cultures, to identify and|
understand user needs
|Identify and solve their own design problems and understand how to reformulate|
problems given to them
|Develop specifications to inform the design of innovative, functional, appealing products|
that respond to needs in a variety of situations
|Use a variety of approaches [for example, biomimicry and user-centred design],|
to generate creative ideas and avoid stereotypical responses
|Develop and communicate design ideas using annotated sketches, detailed plans, 3-D|
and mathematical modelling, oral and digital presentations and computer-based tools
|Select from and use specialist tools, techniques, processes, equipment and machinery|
precisely, including computer-aided manufacture
|Select from and use a wider, more complex range of materials, components and|
ingredients, taking into account their properties
|Analyse the work of past and present professionals and others to develop and broaden|
|Investigate new and emerging technologies|
|Test, evaluate and refine their ideas and products against a specification, taking into|
account the views of intended users and other interested groups
|Understand developments in design and technology, its impact on individuals, society|
and the environment, and the responsibilities of designers, engineers and technologists
|Understand and use the properties of materials and the performance of structural|
elements to achieve functioning solutions
|Understand how more advanced mechanical systems used in their products enable|
changes in movement and force
|Understand how more advanced electrical and electronic systems can be powered and|
used in their products [for example, circuits with heat, light, sound and movement as
inputs and outputs]
|Apply computing and use electronics to embed intelligence in products that respond to|
inputs [for example, sensors], and control outputs [for example, actuators], using
programmable components [for example, microcontrollers]
|Cooking and Nutrition|
|Understand and apply the principles of nutrition and health|
|Cook a repertoire of predominantly savoury dishes so that they are able to feed|
themselves and others a healthy and varied diet
|Become competent in a range of cooking techniques [for example, selecting and|
preparing ingredients; using utensils and electrical equipment; applying heat in different
ways; using awareness of taste, texture and smell to decide how to season dishes and
combine ingredients; adapting and using their own recipes]
|Understand the source, seasonality and characteristics of a broad range of ingredients|
