The Towards Safer Speeds Challenge and the Stemgirls are proud to showcase our latest traffic calming interventions.
Over two years, we have investigated and designed a diverse range of road safety measures to slow speeds on our roads.
The crossing idea evolved over this period of time. Our wallaby crossing is the first 3D crossing in Australia that has been developed by primary school students through Stem Education.
A big thanks to Zest International for bringing our ideas to life! The girls have been busy creating digital 3D traffic calming interventions and have used Virtual Reality to elaborate on their ideas for road safety.
We are looking forward to receiving feedback from the community to measure which interventions are the most effective to promote safer speeds on our roads.
21st century learning has enabled the youth of today (particularly girls) to solve real world problems and take action through Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics.
