Introducing a dynamic 2-day program, where flexibility reigns as the days need not be consecutive, empowering teachers with valuable materials and professional learning experiences to carry forward into their school environments. This innovative initiative is proudly presented in partnership with Ambulance Victoria, offering students a unique opportunity to tackle real-world design challenges directly aligned with the pressing issues faced by Ambulance Victoria, spanning both ground and air ambulance operations.

During this program, students will embark on a creative journey, tasked with designing, manufacturing, and producing innovative solutions aimed at addressing the specific challenges confronted by Ambulance Victoria. These solutions, driven by ingenuity and teamwork, will undergo rigorous testing, and potentially be integrated into ambulances operating across the state of Victoria.

To facilitate their imaginative pursuits, students will be granted access to a wide array of cutting-edge manufacturing tools, equipping them with the resources needed to turn their visions into tangible, practical solutions. This program promises an enriching experience that not only empowers students but also contributes to the enhancement of ambulance services within the local community, making a lasting impact beyond the classroom.
