The Government's National Curriculum Working Group on Design and Technology issued its final report in June 1989. This book reflects the main recommendations of the report. It is a textbook designed for the National Curriculum/GCSE courses and contains over 70 practical technology projects. Summary: Fantastic book! A "must-buy" for books in its class!
Design and Technology is really a splendid book! The author has done a masterful job at clearly explaining and illustrating the design process and a core set of enabling technologies that underlie product design and manufacturing. The book is really aimed at junior high school and high school students, but I've even used pieces of it with undergraduate mechanical engineers! The book includes practical project ideas and examples of how these fundamental technological concepts are applied in real life.
I highly recommend this book to teachers at all levels, to parents who would like to encourage budding young engineers or scientists, or to anyone interested in finding out how things work.
