Prerequisite: Chemistry Studies, Chemistry SL, Chemistry HL, Physics SL, Physics HL, Further Biology

IB Design Technology is a multi-disciplinary course that draws on areas of knowledge that includes science, business, and art. Students will learn and delve into a complete design research and strategy, culminating in the creation of a product. Students will have the option to further develop their product into a company offering that will be created in other classes at Lausanne. They will learn the marketing and feasibility of new products through analysis of a design opportunity, testing, and evaluation. While in the art module, they will learn conceptual design and development of design using idea development and concept modeling. Lastly, science would complete the intersection by incorporating new technology and manufacturing processes into the production process. This course is a unique combination of design discipline brought together by a common thread of craft, materials, marketing, problem solving, informed creativity and innovative thinking. Students would be working on analysis of data, observation, and research to inform their creative process.
