Teachers in a managed term project will:
Makers Empire will run four group projects a year, corresponding with school terms. Each term will be focused on a particular challenge course:
How can we prepare for and respond to problems caused by natural disasters such as bushfires, earthquakes, floods and volcanoes? Students will develop an understanding about different types of natural disasters and create designs to help. This course aligns with UN Sustainable Development Goals #11 Sustainable Cities and Communities and #13 Climate Action.
What makes a structure strong? How many cars can a bridge hold? How tall can a tower be before it becomes unstable? How can we build things that stand the test of time? Grade 5-7 students will be challenged to think like architects and civil engineers and design strong, sustainable structures for a range of purposes. This course aligns with UN Sustainable Development Goal #11 Sustainable Cities & Communities.
How can you keep your mind and your body well? What can you do to improve your well being? How can you help others? This Challenge Course explores strategies for keeping our minds and bodies healthy and asks grade 3-6 students to design solutions that contribute to healthy happy communities. This challenge course aligns with UN Sustainable Development Goal #3: Good Health and Well-being.
The Earth’s climate is changing. Human activity is causing temperatures to rise around the globe. Science can help us understand why this is happening and the actions we need to take to protect the Earth. In this Challenge Course, grade 5-7 students will think about changes they can make in their daily lives that will help slow global warming and design innovative solutions for addressing this global problem. This course aligns with UN Sustainable Development Goal #13 Climate Action.
