  1. The Survival Series: Climbing Mount Everest

    The Survival Series uses real-life survival situations to connect approaches from maths, technology and science. Students from Years 7-9 will undertake research and conduct experiments using combinations of maths and design methods to provide solutions to the design problems. The series is centred around project-based learning, and covers Level 6 VELS in Design, Creativity and Technology, Maths, Science, Interpersonal Development and Personal Learning. In Survival: Climbing Mount Everest, students are required to complete three challenges relating to survival on the mountain: designing a coat to protect them from hypothermia, designing a bridge that will enable them to safely cross a crevasse, and designing a device that will transport altitude-sick students down the mountain.
