DATTA Vic Mission

Design and Technologies is an area of the curriculum that applies the Design Process, and uses tools and materials (with new technological knowledge) to create products, services and environments.

DATTA Vic represents Design and Technologies Teachers (including Systems Engineering, STEM, Textiles, Electronics, Auto & Primary teachers) in education throughout Victoria.

DATTA Vic is a non-profit organisation that was formed in October 1987. Since our humble beginnings as a group of like-minded teachers of Technology we have grown to a membership of over 1300 educators.

The DATTA Vic committee consists of volunteer members and two part-time paid office staff.

We hold annual conferences and facilitate various Professional Learning workshops throughout the year.
