A Closer Look: Technological Design

From utilizing the six C’s of inquiry-based Deep Learning to working with 21st-century technology in the classroom, the increasingly popular Technological Design programme at St. Michael’s College School (SMCS) inspires students to develop the knowledge and skills to solve real-world problems.

The courses offered in Grades 10 to 12 have students working with 3D printers, 3D scanners, laser and vinyl cutters, wood-cutting and shaping equipment, and more. Students learn about and use the engineering design process to define a problem, brainstorm ways to solve it, prototype, and communicate their solution.

The programme culminates in a final project that takes into account a student’s strengths and interests while encompassing  their learning throughout the year.
