The paper describes a collaborative project between four LEAs and NCET to study food activities within design and technology. The intention of the project is to produce a booklet for schools which describes work at four or five schools (one at each key stage) and which explores in depth the issues of: goals, effective starting points and contexts, links to other aspects of design and technology, concepts developed and the progression of these through the key stages, skills, resource requirements, organisation, assessment, storage, display and equal opportunities. The paper will be an 'interim report' of the project and will also present the group's initial thinking on other issues such as: how can we recognise design and technological activity? How can we help parents, helpers and governors to appreciate the implications of the changes and support design and technology work? What are the implications for classroom layout and design?
