Well done to everyone who has already submitted an entry for yesterdays Design your own zip-line challenge. That challenge will stay open until Wed night so you still have time to enter it.

Todays challenge looks at how an engineer might try and solve every day problems or look for improvements in a product. Today you are challenged to design your very own pencil case. I do not expect anyone to go and build it. Instead you are asked to fill out the sheet below and draw out your ideal design. Watch the video for some tips.
