Design and technology is a hands-on subject, so what better way to demonstrate the applications of it across the world than to take your students on a school trip abroad?
On a design and technology school trip, your students can explore and compare old and new technology in design museums, get up close to some of the world’s most impressive buildings and witness the end results of design projects in the real world.
New York and Berlin are certainly important global centres for design and technology, offering plenty of opportunities for inspiration.
A school trip to New York could include a visit to Parsons the New School for Design, which counts many world-renowned fashion designers among its alumni. You could also visit the Cooper-Hewitt National Design Museum, which has a fascinating collection of historic and contemporary design.
A design and technology school trip to Berlin, while closer to home, will certainly be no less exciting, with visits to the Deutsches Technikmuseum, the BMW Motorcycle Plant and even an architecture tour!
