Scenario:

"You are a team of volunteers designing survival packs for families whose homes are under threat from the fires.

You will be using a budget allocated to your team to create a survival pack. All items selected must fit inside a 2x1m trailer.

Each family which your team is assigned to lives in a different area and has their own needs.

You will need to be creative and show critical thinking (and your budgeting skills) to determine which items will best support your family.
