This year, 33 UC5 girls have created entries for the artefact based Higher Project Qualification (HPQ). They have all successfully realised their ideas by producing an artefact of their choosing.

Each artefact is underpinned by extensive research to identify the needs of a target market and, through competitor analysis, embody a unique selling point. The girls learn the specific technical skills they need in order to manufacture their artefact and, through iterative experimentation and prototyping, arrive at their final design. Click here for further details and photographs.
