Hacking the Future 2014: LIVE PLAY MOVE
Successful innovations start with great stories
Schools Programme – The Design Competition
The three challenges have been devised around the sustainability and wellbeing agenda to give structure to
the student’s explorations. The topics have been loosely connected to discipline areas to help keep
relevance to student portfolios and career preferences. However, we believe these are sufficiently open
not to limited student creativity.

Growing, Preparing and Cooking food at Home
We would like you to create designs which inspire
and promote healthy eating and energy efficiency
when cooking. Some questions that might help
you come up with ideas are:
1. When selecting, preparing or serving food
what can you design to motivate people to eat
healthily?
2. How can you make eating healthily more fun?
3. How could energy be saved when preparing,
cooking or storing food?
4. What else do people do in the kitchen and
how could you create something which allows
it to contribute to healthy eating or energy
efficiency?
These are only suggestions – please use your own
ideas too! Below are some inspirational
companies that you could research for ideas and

immediately. We would like you to design

fun way. Some questions that might help you
come up with ideas are:
1. How could packaging be used to improve the
user experience?
2. Can technology be included in packaging?
3. Is it possible to create fun packaging that
improves impact on the environment?
We are sure you will have some great ideas of
how to improve packaging, and below there are
some inspirational companies that you could

Making better use of time spent travelling
New designs have the power to improve people’s
lives in many ways. Everyone spends time
travelling either walking, on public transport or in
the car. Can you develop a design that makes
travel more interesting, exciting and enjoyable?
Some questions that might help you come up with
ideas are:
1. If travelling by yourself what could you use the
time to do that is useful or fun? For example
using travel to help keep you fit, healthy or
find out more about where you live
2. What could you change about the roads, parks
or pavements that people walk along?
3. What do you wear or carry when you are
travelling? Is there something you could
design that people could ‘wear’?
4. How can you bring together all the different
people that travel the same journey or in the
same area?
We want you to look at how people act when they
travel and see if you can improve this for them
and the environment in general – good luck!
