Contextual Challenge (the problem that needs solving)
Over the next 3 years, you will be making a number of projects which have small parts and components. If these are not stored correctly, parts and components will be lost. You will need to design and make a storage system to keep all of your parts, components and projects safe.
In our first full project we are going to be making a box to store all our future projects. However before we start we need to have a think about what we need it to be able to do.
The below table helps us to prioritise the requirements for our storage box, this table is known as a SPECIFICATION.
Specification (the list of criteria that needs completing to solve the problem)

|Have a catch to stop the lid opening||Open and close smoothly||Be painted or sanded|
|To be at least dimensions 150mm X 90mm X 50mm||Be lined on the inside|
|Have your name on the inside|
|Be safe to handle - no sharp edges|
