Working in teams, communication, presenting their ideas to the dragons. Applying their scientific knowledge to create a new product.
This challenge day will give students the opportunity to enter the ‘Dragons Den’. Students will need to design a product and present it to a panel of Dragons. Working in teams of between 4-6, pupils will need to assess their own strengths and weaknesses, and take on their roles to run a successful business.
The teams will then brainstorm various product ideas before developing a final product design. Once selected, teams will produce a series of prototypes, considering the materials used, the needs of the end user and the cost implications of their decisions. They will then sell their product idea to the Dragons.
