Inspire your pupils with these ingenious technologies. Appropriate technology is designed to be sensitive to the environmental, social and economic aspects of the community it is intended for. The devices require fewer resources, are easier to maintain and have less environmental impact compared to techniques from mainstream technology. They are important in developing countries where electricity is unreliable and spare parts are often unavailable. Why not try some out in the ‘outdoor classroom’?
