Facing the Future

Facing the Future is a unit of work which challenges students to collaborate in the creation of an innovative and sustainable built environment. The project provides students the opportunity to design a built environment that utilises sustainable materials and can harvest alternative forms of energy and water. Students make a scale model of their designs and present a portfolio. The project integrates outcomes from science, mathematics and technology.
