Griffith Red Zones web bannerWith exams coming up, Griffith University students are well and truly “in the zone”. However, another kind of zone has launched at our Nathan and Gold Coast campuses.

The Griffith Red Zonesprovide an exciting and immersive learning experience through interactive technology and massive projection displays.

Showcasing research and teaching expertise across Griffith University, the Red Zones areopen to students and staff, as well as visitors from schools and community groups, corporate partners and international guests.

Students are encouraged to use the Red Zones to collaborate on projects with other students, relax and learn more about what is happening in the University.

The Gold Coast Red Zone is located in the Griffith Health Centre (G40) and the Nathan Red Zone is at the Sir Samuel Griffith Centre (N78).

Among the highlights of the Red Zones, visitors can:

  • Use body movements to make music via Kinect motion sensors and a giant screen display;
  • Experience the augmented reality sandbox where you can create rivers, mountains and valleys and see what happens when you make it rain;
  • Hear the future of music with work from Popular Music students from the Queensland Conservatorium Griffith University;
  • Immerse yourself in hidden worlds by exploring ancient rock art sites and discovering some of the world’s oldest cave drawings;
  • Imagine the future of water and rivers through an interactive water catchment simulator used by the Australian Rivers Institute;
  • Get on your bike and discover what pedal power really means.

You can share your Red Zone experience too!
