This resource from Practical Action contains a CD with six presentations covering the D&T focus areas, linked teachers' notes and photocopiable sheets for students. The aspects covered include: inspirational products for designers; four dimensions of Sustainable Design - economic, environmental, cultural and social impacts; product life cycle analysis; and the six Rs definitions. These aspects are delivered through the presentations on electronics, food technology, graphics, product design, systems and control and textile design. The pack also contains 13 postcards that will help your students understand how designers use the six Rs to develop inspirational products. There are some great ideas to stimulate creativity in sustainability and it contains links to prompt sheets and activity sheets. The presentations include things such as the life journey of a drinks can, a challenge to develop a chocolate bar with sustainability in mind, and an analysis of mobile phones’ components.
