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.
