A primary Upd8 from The ASE and Practical Action

This Upd8 looks at a  ‘big question’ facing a girl called Grace who lives in Sudan…how can her family keep their fruit and vegetables fresh for longer?

Pupils gain an understanding of what it might be like to be a child like Grace, to live in a village with no electricity to keep fruit and vegetables cool. They then go on to investigate how building a special container using insulation to stop heat transfer may help.  Finally they look at the actual solution used by families like Grace’s in Sudan.
