Problem Solving by Design
Students are given or create their own design briefs for all major projects and follow the Middle Years Program (MYP) Design Cycle during the process. The flow chart below is also a useful tool to trace your progress through your major project from design brief to evaluation of your finished product. All of these should be considered when investigating, designing, producing, evaluating and planning and managing, and also in your written work to be submitted for assessment. It is part of your curriculum.
