The students’ task is to form a virtual design company which will make a bid for the design of the Bio-Medical Space Hub. They will have to build a 3D model of the Space Hub and then present their design ideas to a team of industry judges.
The challenge is an exciting and fun learning environment for students. Students are encouraged to go beyond the minimum, be creative and innovative to explore different design options. Some of the problems students will face when designing the Bio-Medical Hub may combine the challenges faced by engineers when building a full-scale hospital with those required when designing small operational spaces on the Future Submarine project.
The program will expose students to 3D design software and deliver challenges that will provide opportunities for creativity.
The problem will introduce students to virtual reality software, help students develop problem-solving skills and will promote working and contributing to a team environment.
This competition will allow schools to participate in a complex STEM program at minimal expense and does not require to have access to significant Design and Technology workshop facility.
