Floating Garden Challenge

Award Level Star, SuperStar, Discovery, Bronze

Pupils explore the problem that as a result of climate change there is more rain in Bangladesh than ever before. Land where families used to grow their crops is now flooded on a regular basis. The result is people go hungry. Their challenge is to design and build a model structure that will enable farmers to grow crops even in an area that may become flooded.

This resource has been produced by Practical Action, in partnership with the CREST Awards scheme.

The resource is also available in Welsh.
