Practical Action: Regreen the Desert

  Secondary | Environment | Views: 145

Can you come up with an ingenious solution to help families in Sudan overcome climate change and turn the desert green?

Conduct some research on Sudan and its climate change issues. Visit the Practical Action website for help with this.

Learn about water pressure by conduction an investigation using water and a plastic bottle. How can you make water go as far as possible? Will the size of the holes in a bottle, the height of the holes, or the height of the bottle make a difference?

Your challenge is to:

1. Imagine you are an engineer, scientist or designer working to help the Sudanese people water their crops.

2. Can you use your STEM skills to design a model of a system that can collect and store rain water then transport it to at least 6 plants?

Visit the Practical Action website for further resources and materials.
