Spirituality in Design & Technology
Spirituality features in design and technology as it provides the platform for children to create artefacts that reflect their personal beliefs, values and experiences. Through designing and creating objects, children can express their spirituality and explore their connection with nature, other people and their own emotions.

Design and technology can also promote spiritual growth by encouraging children to develop empathy towards others, consider ethical and environmental implications of their creations, and work collaboratively with others to address social issues. Children can use their technological skills to create designs and solutions that tackle poverty, sustainability, and justice issues. Moreover, design and technology can also provide opportunities for children to engage in contemplative and meditative practices, as they explore the inner world of creativity and imagination.
