Game Design Online

Students work through a series of guided tasks to create a playable 2D game in Unreal Engine learning about simple animations, health & damage, jumping, collisions, platforming, and more.

Players also learn about creating a user interface for the main menu from a variety of given image assets themed around being a jungle ninja. Ambitious students may want to import their own assets and re-theme the game as a different kind of adventure, such as space, biological or modern combat.

Chocolate by Design Online

Chocolate By Design explores the design process of a new promotional chocolate product with a significant focus on the sustainability of packaging and the ethical supply of raw materials.

Bushfood Bites Online

Bushfood Bites are bite-size sessions introducing students to Australian native Bushfoods as a growing revolution in the Australian food industry. It explores the science and innovation behind popular foodie products.

Watch online Masterclasses and try recipes that enable students to create their own bushfood inspired meals. The learning content is a mixture of informative text, short films, website links and hands-on activities.

Hive Heist CSI Online

The Hive Heist program enables students to work in small groups to develop and use reasoning, anaylsis and critical thinking skills when presented with the details of a crime which has been committed in the local Bee Keeping industry.

In order to solve the crime, teams will need to work through a number of pieces of evidence using online tools to analyse each one and determine who was at the crime scene, when the crime happened, why it was committed and ultimately, by whom it was committed.

Soil Science Online

The program integrates the scientific disciplines of physics, biology, chemistry and mathematics. Evaluating the capabilities and limitations of different soil types, examining soil biological activity and assessing the availability of water and nutrients within soil is essential to establishing a healthy balanced and agriculturally productive soil.

This program has been designed for students to be able to learn remotely at home, however it can easily be used by teachers within the classroom setting.

VCE Biology – Molecular Genetics Of Disease

Students will apply genetic techniques used in medical research and testing environments. They will gain experience in the use of gel electrophoresis and blood specimen microscopic examination, both of which are typically carried out in wet laboratories.

Part 1:

Students will separate patient DNA by gel electrophoresis.

Part 2:

Students will examine blood specimens from patients with and without sickle cell anaemia.
