The results of the Global Classroom’s Water Challenge in association with Imperial College London and Practical Action were recently announced.
The competition was launched in October 2013 on National Poetry Day, with students creating their own poems on the theme of water before starting on the challenge. Students researched global water problems, chose what they wanted to investigate and worked together to find a solution. Ten schools took part in the competition and produced a range of brilliant ideas, including filters for cleaning dirty water, irrigation systems and flood-proof housing. Many of the submissions we received were just the tip of the iceberg; schools ran their own competitions and selected the best solution to submit to our judges. We will be celebrating the work of all our students in a short film.
Many congratulations to our winning students and their schools. The judges were very impressed with the range and quality of the submissions and the impact that the challenge had on all the students who participated.
Please watch our film to find out who our winners are:
