One of the well-known 'Design & Make It' Series used in many classrooms. 
Electronics fundamental to the study of the subject at GCSE are introduced through a series
of small 'product design' tasks - any of which could be the basis for a GCSE final project. 
The first is based around designing and making a digital lock, whilst the second is based on
making an electronic timing device.  The final tasks create an alarm for a production company
and the an electronic toy / game for a young child.
