Smoky Homes is an exciting Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths (STEM) project.

The project provides a real-life context for pupils to explore the health and environmental problems faced by the 3 billion people globally who cook on open fires or traditional cook stoves.

It can be used to deliver parts of the UK’s Science and Design and Technology curriculum or an enrichment day.

The project offers opportunities for pupils to work in groups to:

  • Engage with a range of images and videos that introduce the context and people of Nepal
  • Design and model their ideas for improved cook stoves and/or stove hoods.

This project is accredited for the CREST award scheme and can be used as a project for the Big Bang Competition.
