GLOBAL CLASSROOM: UPDATE ON THE WATER CHALLENGE

The Global Classroom’s Water Challenge encouraged our students to work like scientists and engineers to tackle real-life water problems. Students researched global water problems to decide which issue they were going to explore further. They then worked on designing, testing and building their solution to the problem, ranging from ways to produce suitable drinking water to flood-proof housing.

The charity Practical Action gave our students the context for the challenge by sharing some of the work they’ve done with local communities around the world to find practical solutions to the poverty they face. Scientists from Imperial College, London shared their ideas about how to take part in the challenge successfully.

The Water Challenge encouraged our students to improve their skills, knowledge and attitudes to learning using our High Performance Learning approach. Students developed their knowledge and understanding of both water-related problems facing communities around the world and scientific processes used to find solutions to them. They developed their inquiry skills, used their imagination and creativity and demonstrated perseverance to find a solution that worked.

The Water Challenge entries will be judged in February, with winners announced by the end of the month.

The Global Classroom’s annual in-school activity gives students the opportunity to experience hands-on authentic learning. Students are able to collaborate, innovate and lead a large-scale project that will have a sustainable and wide-reaching impact.
