    Abstract

    Cover 1Design and Technology in the curriculum Design and Technology in the primary school, as in the secondary, aims to foster the development of these fundamental human characteristics. A little known but interesting work by Evans, A Case of Primary School Technology (1983), explored the applicability of the 'Project Technology'1 approach to primary schools. Functional devices, on the other hand, are inescapably open to objective evaluation; the functional question being does the device perform the intended function? Children are making apparent the quality of their thinking and their value judgements, through modelling - conceptually and physically - objects and systems that meet human needs. The uniqueness of technology education lies in the means of validating that thinking.
