Develop a new sports venue

This resource requires students to consider the challenges of designing and developing a new sports venue. To make this challenge more manageable, it has been divided into four separate challenges: the site, the structure, the court and the environment. As well as researching and developing ideas, the challenge is an opportunity for students to explore, experiment and innovate.

For each challenge, a selection of relevant test procedures and factsheets are available which provide some information and guidance, but teams may wish to undertake further research of their own.

Curriculum links include: properties of materials, composites, energy, heat transfer, thermal insulation, microbes, light, structural design, designing and making, creativity, critical evaluation, design, make and evaluate task, sport science, iterative processes, prototypes.
