Project Update

The Presentation went well.

For those who are interested, here is a PDF of the presentation.


I am happy with where I am leaving the project to head into the Field project. I have yet to figure out what I would like to do for Field but I am sure an idea will come to me soon. A few notes to take into developing the crab project for the 11th of May 2018:

  • As a presentation, using quotes of the the screen but not verbally quoting it but saying something in your own words, it is confusing to make clear. Difficult to concentrate. There was enough time.
  • Pace of the presentation was good. Energy Dense.
  • Data to justify packaging design is a good move.
  • Make a video to make the project more shareable. Encapsulates the project.
  • To make the project memorable, the use of Hermit crabs looks essential.


I have set myself a monthly calendar for activities relevant to the crab project:


  • Continuation of Research into the topic.
  • Finalisation of the Mechanical and Chemical themes.
  • Reaching out to individuals concerning a CT Scanner.


    • Initial layout for the project video.
    • Discuss the possibility of applying for ethics.
    • Discuss the possibility of having Hermit Crabs within my Exhibition. Pro’s and Con’s.
    • Further Research.
    • Achieve a costing report. Material and Production Costing.




  • Finalisation of the Social theme: Aesthetic and Consumer Product.
  • Initial development for potential board presentation layouts.


  • Layout the presentation boards required. Ensure all criteria is met.


  • Finalise the PDS and also the Research Document. Printed and Bound.
  • Have the Exhibition layout finalised and ready for displaying (end of April).


  • Finalise all content for the 20 minute presentation and the Exhibition.


As you can see from above, time slots for the video have not been included, I believe that it is best for me to see if having ethics is a good idea for the project and most importantly the safety of the crabs.

I have a feeling that I will not be using crabs within my project, I think it would be irresponsible of me to provide facsimile model shells to a species especially if those facsimile models are not produced in the correct material.
