Three new Primary Upd8 activities produced by the Association of Science Education  (ASE) in collaboration with Practical Action for the Global Learning Programme England.

Each looks at a ‘big question’ faced by a child living in a developing country and encourages pupils to work scientifically and investigate the science behind a potential solution.

Materials for each lesson comprise of  a PowerPoint presentation, which incorporates student worksheets, and comprehensive teacher notes with links to useful secondary sources of information. In addition to being suitable for the science curriculum these materials can be used in a science or STEM club.
