Engineering Elegance - Awards

Description

The winning entry for a dress designed from e-textiles for Key Stage 4 and Key Stage 5 design and technology students is complete.

Presenter Kate Bellingham set a challenge to KS5 and KS5 design and technology students to design her a dress made from e-textiles, to wear as she hosts the British Engineering Excellence Awards at the Globe Theatre, London.

The winning design, by A-level product design student Abigail, has now been completed and Kate is wearing it at the awards show.

The designers reveal how the electronics were integrated into the dress, how the electronic components are controlled and whether everything has gone to plan.
