The paper describes the philosophy and structure of a new Web service for technology education that is being developed by the authors. The fundamental concept is that the site allows pupils and teachers to ‘visit’ industry and to learn how products are designed and made. Each ‘visit’ focuses on a particular product and tells its story through the people involved in its production. The ‘visit’ is complemented by ideas for follow-up activities in schools and hotlinks to other relevant resources on the Web.
