This paper describes a curriculum development project in which formal science lessons are located within a short design and technology project. The objective is to examine one model of curriculum delivery in which science is integrated with design and technology in order to enhance learning in both subjects. The approach is illustrated by describing the results of a project in which units of work from the National Exemplar Schemes of Work for science and design and technology (QCA, 1998) are used. Some conclusions are drawn as to how pupils might be helped to gain the appropriate science knowledge they need for designing and making by adapting the nature of the science activities.
