Sydney's Super Tunnel (2020) is a documentary series about the construction of Sydney Metro. Filmed over five years, the series traces the enormous engineering challenges faced by what is the biggest public transport project in Australia: a brand new, state-of-the-art driverless metro system through, beneath and above the streets of Sydney.
Sydney's Super Tunnel is a recommended resource for students in Years 7–10 in the following Australian Curriculum learning areas:
- Humanities and Social Sciences – Geography and History
- The Arts – Media Arts
Where appropriate, links have been made to the Australian Curriculum cross-curriculum priority Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Histories and Culture.
Much of the curriculum included in the study guide can be adapted for use with students in Years 5–6.
Science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) affect almost every aspect of our lives. Innovations driven by people skilled in STEM are changing how we live, work and understand the world.
STEM education fosters students' skills and prepares them to participate in a rapidly changing world and contribute to Australia's future development and prosperity.
The delivery of Sydney Metro provides a context for STEM learning. The Sydney Metro project is an opportunity for students to explore an identified problem and the creation of a solution, building their understanding of how the design process is used in real-world situations.
Teachers are advised to access information about STEM curriculum priorities relevant to their state or territory via the following links.
