Why and how do we create?
What are the consequences?

Human Ingenuity (HI): Human Ingenuity, people as inventors and innovators, has a natural association with technology. The nature of design requires students to plan, produce and evaluate products. Through the realisation of their own ideas, students become creators. As thoughtful practitioners, they reflect on the objects made by others and consider how those makers have brought about change


Human Ingenuity is at the center of everything we do in Technology.
From the Design Cycle itself to using tools and equipment to evaluating upon the impact of our designs.
