Learning Objectives

  • Students will design and collaboratively create innovative man-made islands off of the coastline like Dubai
  • Students will creatively construct useful structures on these newly developed islands

Guiding Ideas

What skills are involved in designing and creating man-made islands like world leader Dubai?

How much earth needs to be mined to create the innovative island designs safely?

Can students work as teams to design both islands and creative structures / purposes for the islands?

Are there innovative new designs that Dubai has yet to employ?

Student Activities

Students will choose or be assigned one of the three+ coastal villages. They will mine from the land to build in the water new innovative island designs like Dubai. Students should perhaps have a quick look at Youtube Dubai projects to both inspire and inform them before their engineering begins.

Students will design, mine, build and then create a purpose and structures for the islands that were created. Tourism hotels or resorts? Science research? Residential homes? Other Ideas?

Performance Expectations

Students will collaborate as a village team to mine materials needed for island development

Students will design an innovative pattern for the islands

Students will build that design focussing on safety, beauty and maximizing land space

Students will collaboratively determine a purpose for the islands and build appropriate structures.
