Technical briefs are documents produced by Practical Action which are freely available to people in the developing world. They provide detailed technical information on a variety of subjects ranging from how to make jams and pickles to how to build a flood-proof house or an aerial ropeway.
As excellent secondary sources of information pupils can use technical briefs for research and to analyse and evaluate raw data. They are therefore great support materials for the new science national curriculum.
Topics covered include:
- Water and sanitation
You can access them all via this link: http://practicalaction.org/technical-briefs-schools
