Singapore: Design Technology Lab

There’s a smell of wood and glue wafting out of the Design Technology Lab, accompanied by a soundtrack of sawing and of sanding machines. Year 10 students are busy making objects following their own designs. Among the paper, pieces of plastic and wood, and tools, I can see a few laptops, with which the students are documenting their work, searching for potential uses for their products or using design programs to create templates for laser cutting later on.
