UNSW Built Environment Faculty will present to the students concepts in design sustainability, and how they can incorporate sustainability in their thought and design process.   Design professionals,  HSC teachers and markers will also be available to inspire students about careers in design; and to help students understand how they will be marked for design and technology in the HSC.

There will be 10 presentations given by UNSW Built Environment over 5 days to approximately 500 students.
