This Term, 5/6 students have taken the challenge to assist the Werribee Zoo Managers to improve animal and staff welfare and visitor experience at Werribee Zoo. In teams they designed, built and evaluated a prototype using their ideas. Two teams won the challenge and today they were treated to a safari tour with a close encounter with the animals on the savanna, back at the zoo. They also presented their ideas and prototype to one of the managers- Johnno. Staff were impressed with the ideas and the way students spoke about their problem solving. Here are some special moments.
What a great experience and what real authentic learning, where organisations listen to young people. Well done to all the students who completed the challenge!
