The James Dyson Award is a fabulous award to show your students especially those thinking through Major Projects in DP2, or just starting the course and getting an idea for the wonderful world of design.
Whether the elegance or Curve a seat for cycles specifically designed for females…or Kwikscreen a way of dividing rooms easily and efficiently to maximize space wins remains to be seen as the judgement countdown suggests 16 days until the winner is announced but a great resource nevertheless. You could even ask students to decide which design they would choose and why – a great way to analyse products for their effectiveness.
