Toolkit

There is a huge world of design.

We have put together a collection of useful resources to give some insights into social design, 3D printing and the maker's network, as well as inspire your thinking!

Also check out the ‘Using Design in Education’ video by Andrew Grant RDI as he talks about how he became a designer and the ways in which design can be used in schools.
