LiteBox portable light desk 8 week project; design and build a workstation that is mobile and dual function
Anna runs her own small business as an interior designer. She does a
of drafting for home additions, cabinet
arrangements, room layouts, and tile designs. Anna does not own a light
table, instead she uses natural light from a window. I want to design a small scale light table that is more practical for her.

KidSafe line of childproof bottles for cleaning products 10 week project; design a product to enter into an international competition
there are 1.2 million accidental poisonings in children under 5 each year
only 37% of families make an effort to purchase products with child resistant lids
(56% from non-pharmaseutical products)
containers for children
avoid bright colors and blobby forms
vs. containers for adults less than 50% of cleaning products on the market have child resistant lids
the bottles all have the same basic form so that they will be easily recognizable
Ridges on a silicone band align with ridges on the bottle to unlock the lid. locked
