A STEM Challenge that addresses how food can be grown on land that is flooded in Bangladesh
A fun hands on investigation suitable for KS 2-5 (age 7-19) pupils
The problem: as a result of climate change there is more rain in Bangladesh than ever before. Land where farmers used to grow their crops is now flooded on a regular basis. The result is families go hungry.
The challenge: to design and build a model structure that will enable farmers to grow crops even in an area that may become flooded.
Teacher resources include a lesson plan, pupil worksheets, a PowerPoint, certificates and more
The challenge can provide a focus for British Science Week, be used as a STEM or science club activity, enhance a lesson on floating and sinking, form the basis of an enrichment day, and be the starting point for a range of cross-curricular activities.
