Executive Summary
The executive summary distills your entire report onto a single page. The executive summary contains a succinct synopsis of the problem definition, the design description and the evaluation.

You should also outline in this section how you met each of EWB’s Four Aims (www.ewb.org.au/learningoutcomes).
Team Reflection
The team reflection page shows your opinion on the project, your findings and what the inspirations for you to finish the project were. This is an ideal opportunity to reflect on the judging criteria of the program and identify the strengths and limitations of your work (www.ewb.org.au/learningoutcomes).

You should consider the following while reflection:
What was the largest obstacle you faced while working on the Challenge? •What impact did working as a team have on your project?
if you had it to do over again what would you change about the project? •What was the most enjoyable part of the Challenge experience?" TABLE OF CONTENTS

Introduction
Provide a brief introduction to the topic you will be covering. 1. Problem definition
This section provides the background and significance of the project, and technical review 1.1Problem scope
This is a short paragraph describing what the problem is. Explicitly state the problem you have addressed. 1.2Technical Review
This section describes why the problem is important. It is a long section providing background information of the problem. It brings the reader up to speed to the current state of the community which you are working with. Chances are that the reader is not an expert so you need to write as if a non-engineer will be reading the report. Even if the reader is an expert, he or she will appreciate a comprehensive review of the situation. The review has two parts. The first part is a more detailed background to the community and the problem you are addressing. For example, if you are developing a medical device, the background would be a tutorial on the medical condition being treated by the device. The second part of the review describes all of the prior information relevant to the problem, which means all of the existing technology and methods relevant to the problem. This can include commercial products, academic journal articles and theses, and patents. The technical review will have many citations to the source of the information with citations listed in the Reference section. 1.3Design requirements

In this section, you outline three to five concrete, measureable design requirements which are driving your design. Only list requirements that can be measured or tested. For each requirement, indicate the source and why it is important. Use subheadings, a numbered list or a table. This is an ideal location to review the Judging criteria to ensure your design requirements align with the expectations of the...
