The Design and Technology application provides students with a new way to learn, work and prepare for tests and exams in many areas of Design and Technology. Study on the bus, in your home or in school without the need to carry your books. You can even listen to your music at the same time.
If you are in KS3, currently working on your GCSE coursework or an A Level student this application will provide you with key information in the palm of your hand. If you are studying Systems and Control, Product Design, Electronic Products, Graphic Products or Resistant Materials this application includes information on materials, processing techniques, industrial processes, health and safety, legislation, electronics, production techniques, electronic components, circuits, structures, tools & equipment, mechanisms, packaging, drawing techniques and many more topics relevant in all of these subject areas.
If you are struggling with coursework (Controlled Assessment) then the coursework guidance provides details and hints of what you could include in your own work combined with examples of students work to give you ideas. Follow the layout, structure and guidance to ensure your coursework is concise and includes all the relevant information to be successful at GCSE level.
The application includes many revision quizzes in all subject areas to help you prepare for your exams or class tests. Test your circuit knowledge, component knowledge, circuit symbols, ohms law, materials, industrial production and potential divider to name just a few.

Ratings and Reviews
I use this App with my prod design students at gcse and A level. Having taught across A level, gcse, igcse, IB, MYP and PYP I can vouch that this app is really useful. Any app developed with mep has a plus in my book! I realise the app is developing but having signed up early last year I can already see the massive potential of this app. A really excellent learning and support tool for student and teacher alike. Would be good too see some 'how to' guides on sketching and rendering added at some stage. Well done and thank you! David Ardley, Design Director, Cranleigh School
Great data, but needs polishing
This app is kept regularly updated, and has very helpful notes. Although it's not very polished, (there are a few small errors, but nothing that stops the app functioning) there is some great notes and I'd 100% reccomend this to any GCSE/A-level student doing DT or something similar. The menu system is easy to understand, but there seems to be too many menus, if the menus had broader categories I think the app would be easier to use.
THE app for UK design technology students
As a teacher of design technology I highly recommend this for colleagues and students. Everything is covered and is the perfect revision tool. This app covers all design technology areas in detail including Resistant Materials, Graphics, Food Tech and electronics. I especially like the controlled assessment guide which breaks down each part into well explained parts.
