Design/CTE (Career and Technology Education)

Robotics/Engineering, Computer Science, Digital Arts and Media, IB Foundations, Creative Writing and Farm to Table


As part of the IB Middle Years Programme (MYP), design/CTE challenges all students to:

  • apply practical and creative thinking skills to solve design problems
  • explore the role of design in both historical and contemporary contexts
  • consider their responsibilities when making design decisions and taking action.

MYP design focuses a holistic design process rather than final products and solutions.

MYP uses the design cycle as a way to structure:

  • inquiry and analysis of design problems
  • development and creation of feasible solutions
  • testing and evaluation of students’ models, prototypes, products or systems.
