Rosie Ansell
My interests directly influenced my choice of degree course. I believe that protecting the environment and encouraging sustainable development are essential and should be key factors in the future of design. My final year project is about sustainable ways to bring electricity to developing countries with a focus on helping children. It consists of playground equipment, some of which generates electricity, and a charging station to store and supply it. This provides educational recreation by teaching children about how electricity is generated while they play. The equipment is designed mostly with local materials, so the community can maintain and repair it.
