The United Kingdom has increasingly marginalized the design and technology curriculum, leading to a dramatic decrease in the number of engineers and designers entering the workforce. Our project aided the Design Museum of London in its efforts to motivate student engagement in design and technology through digital design workshops. We researched educational practices, interviewed education professionals, and surveyed students to evaluate the effectiveness of existing workshops. To motivate students to engage more with design and technology, we recommended lesson plan updates, created pre- and post-visit modules for each workshop, and developed a proposal for a new workshop focused on how designers use computer code to create user interactions.
