PRODUCT DESIGN – TEXTILES KENYA
many countries, working people travel by bicycle, donkey or on foot. They have
to carry a variety of equipment or goods with them. Investigate the problem of
carrying equipment or goods and design and make a sustainable method suitable
for the transport type and the area of your choice.
For example, design and make a portable carrier for use by a travelling vet
(known as paravets / wasaidizi / animal helpers and similar to paramedics in UK)
in Kenya whose main method of transport is by bicycle.
For example, design and make an improved bicycle mechanism for bicycle taxis
used in western Kenya.
For example, design and make a more comfortable, less strenuous method for
carrying firewood or water for a person travelling by foot.
