Design Ventura

The Design and Technology Department are proud to announce Cody Casals, Simeon Tinley, Harry Poobalasingham, Louis Stevens, Harrison Htike as the year 10 winners of the Design Ventura competition run by the department this year.

Design Ventura is a design and enterprise competition. Students are challenged to design a new product for the Design Museum Shop with the opportunity to have the winning product manufactured and sold at the shop. The competition offers young people a chance to develop design thinking, creative and business skills.

Over a period of six weeks the students worked in teams and were asked to consider the whole process of design, from initial ideas to manufacturing and budgets to marketing and branding. By the end of the project they created a protype for an everyday product that is in keeping with existing products sold at the design museum.

Only one entry per school can be submitted to the Design Ventura competition, so each group was given the opportunity to communicate their idea in a persuasive way both on paper and through pitching. The winning group from each class was when put forward to be judged by our very own “Dragon” Mr Conway.

The competition this year was really tough as all groups pitched viable ideas, but in the end, there can only be one winner and Mr Conway chose Team Ciclone.  Their presented in a professional manner and their idea of a multi-function game board was well received.

Team Ciclone made up of Cody Casals, Simeon Tinley, Harry Poobalasingham, Louis Stevens, Harrison Htike who were delighted with the result and are excited to send off their entry to represent the school in the national competition.
