There were two different design briefs; The Weight Driven Car Task and The Bridge Task. Students were supplied with a set list of materials, a work station with a range of tools and a written specification for their product. Each team of designers and engineers had to build their model with a portfolio of working drawings, ideas, developments and solutions.
