Phoebe's innovative bushfire-proof house design

Phoebe model

For our Unit of Inquiry on Innovation, students explored innovative designs in housing that help protect against bushfires. They learnt about design features and materials that improve the bushfire attack level (BAL) of housing. Following this learning, students created their own innovative bushfire-proof house designs, starting with drawing and labelling a house and then building a model of their design.

Phoebe was particularly innovative in the way she incorporated moving parts in her model, demonstrating very effectively how her roof-top sprinkler system would protect the house from ember attack!

Take a look below at Phoebe's design and finished model.
