Designing the Future – Year 8

Year 8 Encounter English recently threw up some challenges for our budding Middle School Engineers.

IMG_7409 They  completed a project-based assessment where they had to invent and design a Utopian society.

Groups had to present their cities designed around forms of government, laws and sustainability that they felt would provide a perfect existence for  inhabitants.

IMG_7410Our Year 11 students were invited to critique the presentations, and some insightful questions were posed to group members during the sessions.

Based around Blended Encounter themes of Urbanisation and themes emulating from the novel “The Giver”, students slowly came to the conclusion that creating a perfect world is no easy task.
