Pupils look at technologies from the last 100 years then design a new sustainable technology for the future
Our Small is challenge is based around Practical Action’s founder E.F.Schumacher’s philosophy that small changes can lead to a big impact on people’s lives.
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.
Within the further information section, you find examples of students inspirational ideas and how to take the challenge further into regional and national events.
