Awareness of the issues around sustainable design has increased markedly in recent years and building sustainability into products is now recognised as essential. To fully understand the issues and approaches designers need to be aware of the impacts of design and manufacture and change their thinking and approaches to ensure products are viable in terms of minimising negative effects.
This free resource, developed with the support of SolidWorks, offers a wide-ranging look at sustainability in product design at an appropriate level for GCSE and A Level students. It looks at the role of the product designer and the many factors they should be aware of when designing.
The importance of researching, measuring and assessing existing and potential impacts, and the limitations designers face are all covered. Students can bring this knowledge to developing their GCSE and A Level designs for the contextual challenge and in written exams.
