Engineering Elegance - Design
In this Teachers TV video, presenter and teacher Kate Bellingham sets a design challenge to Key Stage Four and Key Stage Five design and technology students. The brief is to design a dress using e-textiles to be worn by Kate as she hosts the British Engineering Excellence Awards.
Kate is joined by a panel of fashion, engineering and textiles experts to help choose a winning design. The judges will be looking for how well the designs have followed the brief, the incorporation of different e-textiles, such as LEDs and fibre optics, how easily the design can be made and whether it will suit Kate.
