Plastics Challenge

An exciting new challenge for pupils aged 8-14 years

 



The challenge: to develop solutions to the problems caused by plastic waste globally.

The challenge can be used flexibly as part of the formal science and design and technology curriculum in the UK, or to run a STEM club or enrichment day. It offers opportunities for pupils to engage with:

  • Practical science investigations and enquiry based learning
  • Designing and making products from waste plastic for a UK or international market
  • A video competition enabling them to share their experience of the challenge.
