Year 10 high school students studying geography see their ideas for urban planning brought to life in this co-design excursion. Classes learn about the principles of urban design and get to apply them using a scale model kit. Typically three iterations of their design are created and documented per group giving the students opportunities to receive real time feedback from experts and modify their decisions. Sun-path simulations are always a spectacle!
‘This unit of work has worked better than I ever expected and the highlight of every student is the trip to AUDRC to model the work.’
