Floating Garden Challenge
In Bangladesh climate change is having a major impact on those communities living in riverside areas. Heavier, longer rainy seasons mean that land where farmers used to be able to grow crops to feed their family is being flooded before crops can be harvested. As a result families go hungry. In this challenge, pupils are asked to design and make a structure that enables farmers to continue to grow their crops even when the land floods.
The Floating Garden challenge has superb presentations, teacher notes and poster to download.
