Design and Technology (D&T) Education possesses numerous educational values which are being neglected in society, and hence, this results in achievement gaps between the expected and the implemented curriculum. Opportunely, the new technology education curriculum of mainland China and the new Design and Applied Technology curriculum in Hong Kong provide opportunities to fill the gaps. This paper addresses some possible achievements and achievements gaps in D&T, and further depicts how the two curricula serve as gap fillers in the current education systems.
