Y10 DT students took part in a 2 hour design workshop run by two visiting design engineers from Dyson on Tuesday 13 October 2015. After a presentation about the design and testing process at Dyson, students had the opportunity to work in teams and generate a design solution to a problem they have encountered in the home. Boys came up with a range of creative products including a pneumatic lift to 'tip' a person out of bed in the morning, a portable fan which could be controlled using a smart phone app, and a biofuel powered outdoor vacuum. Students then modelled their idea using Dyson manufactured parts and cardboard, and presented their product for critique at the end of the session.  

The workshop highlighted the possible design career paths for students and they were able to put into practise their creative thinking and problem solving skills.
