Working in groups, students investigate characteristics of different materials, human-centred design of living spaces, the mathematics of polyhedrons, flat-pack design principles, and more!
Students acquire the knowledge of processes to enable them to work collaboratively, solving a very real problem. This program is student-directed and encourages discovery of issues affecting people in Bendigo and other Australian communities. They develop “persona profiles” to aid in their empathy and understanding of how various accommodation issues affect real people. The program is structured and facilitated with an emphasis on learning through hands-on processes as well as trial and error testing.
