Design & Technology is important. VERY important. Yet it remains a rather unknown and often an unacknowledged area of the school curriculum. Linking with several subjects including Maths and Science, it is the practical application of a number of curriculum areas.
Teaching students 'problem-solving', 'creativity', 'practical skills'; it equips students with the skills and attributes required to contribute positively to society.
The links between Design & Technology and industry are obvious. Youth Made Emirates aims to bring these two together.
"Education and Industry working together to promote, nurture and celebrate Design & Manufacturing in the U.A.E."
Architecture & Design
"At the heart of LOCI's ethos is the belief that design is not an imported technology, but rather one that sprouts from its context. With that in mind, we are excited to work with Youth Made Emirates to train future designers on how to approach each design opportunity with deep focus on its geographic, climatic, cultural, historical and socio-economic context."
“desert INK believe that it is the responsibility of today’s design community to provide insight into our profession and foster new talent amongst the younger generations. It is in all of our interests that new talent is discovered, nurtured and guided into the creative industries.”
“DGrade are at the forefront of pioneering disruptive processes to make change from a linear to a circular economy, to combat plastic pollution. The challenges we face along the way must be met head on and addressed through modern creative thinking. For this reason we are working with Youth Made Emirates to take the proactive steps needed to develop commercial solutions.”
