I’m picking up good vibrations….

In the never-ending search for good potential GCSE design and technology tasks that will appeal to teenagers, I think we might have a winner here. Inspired by this article:

http://www.guardian.co.uk/lifeandstyle/2012/sep/07/how-the-vibrator-caused-buzz

It has the following to offer:
– initial research into design evolution arising from social and technological change
– critical analysis of existing hand-held technologies
– exploration in use of colour, form, texture in initial soft modelling development phase
– application of knowledge of materials and electronics
– stimulating testing of prototypes
– increase in number of girls taking GCSE Resistant Materials
– growth of awareness in D&T following publicity in the Sun and Daily Mail

Anyone up for it? 🙂
