School programs and resources

Students are taken through an interactive story, solving design challenges faced by Dot, the main character in the Ground Up: Building Big Ideas, Together exhibition. Each time Dot encounters a problem, students build and test solutions in small groups.

Older students will be challenged with design constraints and a more complex end-goal.
