Edexcel DT 2020 NEA contextual challenges



Design themes have been released for 2020 in today’s video we break them down and explain what is expected of you for your GCSE coursework.

Contextual challenges All design and technology happens within a context. It is important for designers to understand the context they are designing within, as this will impact on the wants and needs of users as well as the requirements for the design. Designers often need to find innovative solutions to design challenges and they look for inspiration from many places to come up with ideas. Often, these design challenges relate to ways in which improvements can be made to the lives or environments in which people live. Below are three themes, each with two contextual challenges. You must choose one contextual challenge to explore and respond to through your assessment project.

Theme 1 Climate Emergency Contextual challenges (a) How can products be used to increase our awareness of the climate emergency? (b) How can products be used to promote a more sustainable lifestyle?

Theme 2 Cinemas Contextual challenges (a) How can products be used to encourage people to visit the cinema? (b) How can products be used to improve the experience of people at the cinema?
