The old AQA specification for GCSE Design & Technology allowed schools to offer their own projects for the coursework unit. At Chaucer Technology School a design and make task based on the theme of perfume products was used. It involved researching existing products, devising a brand concept, creating a prototype model of a bottle, its packaging, and a point-of-sale display.
