The world is changing, with rapidly emerging opportunities for innovation.
This central study has as its focus the innovation cycle, with students identifying a problem and designing, prototyping and marketing a solution. This will culminate in an Innovation Expo, where students will compete to market their innovation. Students will explore a range of contents to support this from materials and their properties at a range of scales to historical views on innovation and its drivers, while moving towards an understanding of the potential of current developments and applications such as nanotechnology and biomimicry.
This Central Study will have a significant practical component, with use of 3-d printers, laser cutters, programming and technical drawing as students turn their ideas into reality.
