We structured our online offerings to simulate real-world STEM industry design processes. Consequently, this brought Monash Tech School expertise to the virtual classrooms of partner school teachers.
Taking the place of face-to-face programs, we introduced students to computer-based digital tools to design solutions for complex problems.
Students were asked questions like, ‘How can the digital landscape help your community through hardships that occurrences like social distancing can create?’, and through a series of webinars and resources, we guided students through the process of ideation and design.
