Top 10 Geography Focused 3D Design Challenges

Top 10 Geography Focused 3D Design Challenges

Makers Empire’s 3D design software provides a perfect tool for students to explore geographical concepts such as place and space. Here are out top 10 geographical 3D design challenges.

  1. My Place

Challenge students to design representations of their special places such as homes, holiday locations, bedrooms or outdoor places. The 3D design software enables students to represent places from different perspectives and include 3 dimensional features.

  1. Disaster Response

Research how communities respond and rebuild after natural disasters such as earthquakes, bushfires and floods. User Makers Empire’s 3D design software to design a new building that is more likely to survive a future natural disaster.

  1. Playground design

Challenge students to design a new playground for their school or community. They need to consider available space, age and ability of playground users, safety and suitable equipment.

  1. Liveable cities

Investigate Mercer’s Quality of Living indicators. Challenge groups of students to design a liveable city in 3D that addresses all of these indicators.

  1. Importance of Place

Find out about the significance of local places to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Peoples. Design a model that represents this place based on contemporary and historical information.

  1. Change Proposal

Create a 3D model to show how you would change the use or purpose of a space in the local community. Maybe you will repurpose a vacant block of land into a wetland or a parking lot into a skate park?

  1. Map it

Use Makers Empire’s 3D design software to create maps that represent the spatial distribution of different geographical phenomena and features.

  1. Rewilding

Imagine that an animal is going to be ‘rewilded’ into a completely different habitat. For example, a polar bear in a desert. Use a 3D model to show how you would adapt the environment so that the animal could survive.

  1. Cultural Exchange

Consider the important places and physical features of where you live. If you wanted someone from another country to understand what is important about the place you live, which places, buildings and structures would you create models of to share with them.

  1. Water Flow

Flowing water connects places as it moves through the environment and affects these places and the way people interact with them. Develop a 3D model showing how water moves through a particular environment.
