Subject Description

Ever wondered how critical response teams respond to events and how the use
of technology is enhancing this across the world? Be it an environmental disaster,
a major world event or finding a lost person in inaccessible terrain or at sea, learn
how programmers are vital in emergency response.

Students will use current innovations in technology, including drones and virtual
reality hardware, and apply their programming skills to these to solve a real-life
problem, such as an emergency response scenario. They will need to
deconstruct various problems, visualise possibilities, and work collaboratively,
using their initiative and creativity, to develop practical and effective digital
solutions in response to a problem. This subject could link closely with other
subjects, such as environmental science, depending on the problem presented.
