Introductory PowerPoint for teachers to present Practical Action's Small Is...Challenge to pupils.
Years: 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9
Curriculum Objectives: 4
The challenge for students is to look at technologies from the last 100 years and invent a product that could help us all lead a more sustainable future. Before submitting their design, students will be expected to consider: What affect does technology have on the environment? What affect does technology have on people and communities? Is the technology needed? Once these key questions are considered, pupils will invent a technology that will help us to lead more sustainable lives over the next 100 years.
