Have you ever wondered how people came up with useful solutions to problems? Have you ever had an idea but didn’t know how to make it work? In Creative Solutions you will engage in a hands-on process that helps you make ideas a reality. You will visit a Victorian Zoo to deepen your understanding of a challenge the zoo is currently facing. You will conduct research and use your scientific skills of observation to understand the animals and what the challenge involves.

As a team you will brainstorm ideas for possible solutions. Using a framework of Design Thinking, you will develop and produce a working, creative solution that you can test and improve on. There is the opportunity to submit your idea to the Zoo. Using the same techniques, you will approach other challenges or even choose you own challenge to find creative solutions and bring them into reality.
