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.

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.
