Flood alert

Flood alert
KS3: ages 11-14Website

One of a set of three secondary activities produced by the Association of Science Education (ASE) in collaboration with Practical Action for the Global Learning Programme England. In these lessons students discover how people in the developing world are using science to improve their own lives; carry out an investigation, and consider how learning from the developing world could be of benefit to us in the UK.

Each lesson comprises a PowerPoint presentation, which incorporates student worksheets, and comprehensive teacher notes with links to useful secondary sources of information and suggestions for extension activities which could be carried out in a STEM or science club.

In this lesson students find out how flood alert systems developed in Nepal have helped save lives.  They use their knowledge and skills in building electronic circuits to design and build  their own flood alert system.
