CHILDREN’S UNIVERSITY ADELAIDE
HAS SPACE TO DREAM
The Commissioner’s Digital Challenge is a validated online Learning Destination for Children’s University Adelaide (CUA).
If you are a CUA member you’ll have Space to Dream while you earn hours in your Passport to Learning!
Complete the Commissioner’s Design Thinking Challenge and then look out for the smiley CUA logo to identify other validated activities in the extended learning section.
Ready to take the Challenge?
Follow the five steps of design thinking to design a toy or gadget for someone your age who is moving to Mars.
Spend as long as you like getting your design how you want it to be – take the Challenge in 30 minutes, over 30 hours, in 30 days or over several weeks – the choice is completely yours!
Activities need to be completed outside of curriculum time to be included in your CUA Passport to Learning.
However, you can still complete them on school grounds providing they are completed outside of class-time.
You can complete some of the Space to Dream extended learning activities too.
Look for those displaying the smiley CUA logo:
Take a screen shot of your 3D design (using free Makers Empire online tools) or scan your 2D design (using pen and paper) to show to your School’s Children’s University Coordinator/Teacher.
Your CUA coordinator/teacher will stamp your passport when they have viewed your screenshot.
If you enjoyed the Challenge, students can complete up to 6 additional extended learning activities to receive up to a maximum of 10 hours credit in their passports.
To officially complete the Challenge and receive your certificate from the Commissioner, please submit your completed Design online here
Submit your design by 30 September 2022 to meet the Challenge deadline. You will be sent a certificate by email after you have submitted your design online.
