The Design and Technology Cube

 

Teaching and learning spaces
As the design process responds to advancement in technology, so too must the spaces in which people create solutions to real world problems also evolve. The spaces of the Design and Technology Cube have been purposely formed to embrace and enhance the relationship between the design and making phases, and the interaction of people, ideas, materials and technologies which supports this iterative process.

Such spaces include:

Two design studios, each attached to a multi-purpose workshop
An electronics laboratory attached to a large multi-purpose junior workshop
A systems engineering laboratory
An open plan staff hub, promoting conversation and innovation across all phases of the design process.

Project timings
Works on this exciting project began in late 2016, with the new Design and Technology Centre expected to be operating in the second half of 2017. This project will also enable a series of much-needed improvements to take place in the precinct directly behind the main Quadrangle. There will be more information about these exciting developments in due course.

Innovative learning Spaces

Our conversational teaching approach is most powerful and effective in facilities designed to encourage student and teacher interactions. Each level of the new centre is a unique learning landscape, bringing together formal teaching labs, staff offices and facilities, and a central learning hub.

Sustainability and Green Spaces

 

Efficiency and environment

The new Sir Zelman Cowen Centre for Science is the showcase of environmental sustainability on the campus. We are targeting a Green Star rating to validate the environmental credentials of the building, placing Scotch College at the cutting edge of sustainable teaching environments.
