Practical Action- STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths) Weekly Challenge
*Each week children will need some resources to undertake these challenges. It could be Lego, K’nex or Technic or other construction equipment but each week using ‘junk modelling’ will work brilliantly too.*
*Please watch the video and PowerPoint in the morning then have a go at this screen-free activity in the afternoon. There is a certificate too.*
This week’s challenge- Tomato farmers in Nepal squashed tomatoes challenge.
Once you have finished your challenge and possibly on Thursday (so that we maintain Screen free Wednesday afternoons), you may want to watch the following videos to show how Practical Action and the farmers and workers in Nepal actually solved the 'Squashed tomato' challenge.
