This resource provides a wealth of ideas and support for students wishing to take part in the British Science Association's CREST awards scheme. Ideas for projects related to food are divided into growing it and processing and storing it. Links are provided to technical briefs used by real engineers in the field. They will give your students a real sense of the challenges faced in developing countries and how these can potentially be addressed by science and technology.
In this activity students look at how design specifications are balanced when developing new products. A really useful tool to get them to look at a range of specifications, sustainable and others and to prioritise them.
