Middle Years Programme Subject: Design

Year 9

Design Year-9

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

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

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

Scratch is a block-based visual programming language and website targeted primarily at children 8-16 as an educational tool for coding. 

With Scratch, you can program your own interactive stories, games, and animations — and share your creations with others in the online community.

Scratch helps young people learn to think creatively, reason systematically, and work collaboratively — essential skills for life in the 21st century. Scratch is designed, developed, and moderated by the Scratch Foundation, a nonprofit organization. It is provided free of charge.
