  • Build and apply a repertoire of knowledge, understand and skills in order to design and make high-quality prototypes and products for a wide range of users. 
  • Critique, evaluate and test their ideas and products and the work of others.
  • Understand and apply the principles of nutrition and learn how to cook.
