Contains the full lesson along with a supporting toolkit, including teachers’ notes.
In this lesson we discuss three elements of your project entry, the project diary, the project book and the visual display. You will see when you log into the BTYSTE website that these elements are deemed to be the ‘three main elements’. Our main focus here is on the visual display. This is how you reveal your project to hundreds of visitors who will attend and, most importantly, the judges who will critique every aspect of it.
The advantages of entering a BTYSTE project are well established over many years of a competition that started in 1966. For individual and group projects the experience delivers great satisfaction and high levels of personal learning.
