This KS3 Design and Technology quiz takes a look at needs and likes. In the world of Design and Technology, you must understand people's needs and likes so as to be able to meet them. It's no good creating something that no-one needs or likes! Meeting needs means that whatever is designed must do the job for which it is designed. But that's not enough. For people to buy it, a designer will need to consider the aesthetics too.
The first part of meeting needs and likes are the 'three S's' - Something for Somebody in a Situation. In other words, if someone is in the situation of needing to repair a broken zip fastener, it might be handy for them to have a special tool. A designer would then look at the problem and come up with a solution. But to make sure that it is a good solution, they would do a checklist to identify the Physical needs, Intellectual needs, Emotional needs and Social needs.
