Background

Students were asked to design a battery-operated lighting unit using the green design approach (using recycled materials). Students had been introduced to green design prior to completing this project.
Students were given five weeks to complete the project. They were asked to work in class but were allowed to do parts of the writing-up at home. Students could use the books, magazines, Internet and other resources such as previous students’ work available in the school library to research their topic.
Note: The student’s design folder is not represented in its entirety. Relevant extracts from each of the five stages of the design cycle were selected to provide evidence of the way the assessment criteria have been applied.
