Abstract: This paper presents a non-linear model of design and technology that illustrates the concept of technology for design. Technology’s relationship with science is discussed and research evidence concerning the emergence of new technology for a polymer acoustic guitar is described. This demonstrates the existence of knowledge, skills and values that are derived from designing and making rather than science. Learning ‘by doing’ and teaching ‘by showing’ and their pedagogical implications are discussed. Examples are given from the author’s teaching of undergraduates and from a resource pack on kite design and technology for Key Stage 3. The paper shows the importance of sustaining designing and making in the next century.
