|Albert Street Transformation
|5 to 9
|As the first new train station in Brisbane’s CBD in more than 120 years comes to life, how will this transform Albert Street, creating a city for the future?
Urban change, human-centred design, liveability and transport planning are considered through the lens of the transformation of Albert Street.
|Architects at Work
|3 to 10
|Inspired by our subtropical climate, the four new Cross River Rail underground stations are quintessentially Queensland places that will provide a world-class travel experience. Students consider factors that influenced the design of the stations and how they meet community needs for a sustainable future.
|Biggest Building Battle
|By comparing the length of the new underground Albert St station to local landmark buildings, students engage with the significant engineering on Cross River Rail. Students will apply a design process, to generate innovative ideas, design and build a model tall building.
|Build a Bridge
|4+ (Prep+ alternative available)
|Students are introduced to some of the Cross River Rail bridges as well as globally recognised bridges and the most common bridge designs. Students will apply a design process to generate innovative ideas, design and build a model bridge.
|Design for Accessibility
|5 to 9
|Through a detailed examination of a case study incorporating a range of hands-on and audio-visual materials, students will gain an understanding of technological solutions to accessibility challenges, and the positive impacts for society.
|Super Signalling System
|5 to 9
|Upgrading South East Queensland’s railway signalling system is an important part of the Cross River Rail Project.
This activity is based on a booklet that explains the basics of the new European Train Control System (ETCS), demonstrating how technologies can solve problems and contribute to society.
