Design project: To market

Summary of task

Students designed a sustainable enterprise including the environment to grow a vegetable. They investigated plant varieties, requirements for growth and the control of weeds. Students investigated opportunities for selling produce including value-added products. They planned how to market their produce and value-added products to the local community and designed promotional material. Students documented the design and development process.

The focus of this task was designing and producing a product, service and environment; and the technologies contexts food and fibre production and materials and technologies specialisations.

Achievement standard

By the end of Year 10, students explain how people working in design and technologies occupations consider factors that impact on design decisions and the technologies used to produce products, services and environments. They identify the changes necessary to designed solutions to realise preferred futures they have described. When producing designed solutions for identified needs or opportunities, students evaluate the features of technologies and their appropriateness for purpose for one or more of the technologies contexts.

Students create designed solutions for one or more of the technologies contexts based on a critical evaluation of needs or opportunities. They establish detailed criteria for success, including sustainability considerations, and use these to evaluate their ideas and designed solutions and processes. They create and connect design ideas and processes of increasing complexity and justify decisions. Students communicate and document projects, including marketing for a range of audiences. They independently and collaboratively apply sequenced production and management plans when producing designed solutions, making adjustments to plans when necessary. They select and use appropriate technologies skilfully and safely to produce high-quality designed solutions suitable for the intended purpose.
