The Land of a Thousand Rainbows - Entry Event

This morning Stage 1 was introduced via video link to the Honourable Mayor of the Land of a Thousand Rainbows - Mayor Dimplewink. He presented to us a problem and asked if we were able to help solve it.

The Problem: The Land of a Thousand Rainbows is a vast and beautiful land; however, it is a land without transport systems. Recently the Mayor travelled to be a guest of the Mayor of Sydney City. He discovered that Sydney has an amazing array of ways to get around and desired to bring back these ideas to create an environmentally sustainable transport system for his island.

Mission: Students are to create in teams a model using maker methodologies (boxes, paper, lego ect) or a design using Minecraft. Students will have four weeks to complete this to be completed before a gallery walk and team presentation to the Mayor and parents.
