Why as a team did you choose to focus on this challenge?

I found it an interesting topic as it is very relevant and it isa big problem especially for the new generation. I have think that climate change is an urgent and critical global issue that demands our immediate attention. The impact of climate change is already being felt around the world in the form of rising sea levels, more frequent and severe weather events, and devastating wildfires. It is a complex issue that requires a multifaceted approach to address, including policy changes, technological advancements, and individual actions. By raising awareness and taking action to mitigate climate change, we can protect

What do you know now about the challenge that you didn't know before?

I have learn thinks like this ones 1 Climate change refers to a long-term change in global weather patterns, typically characterized by rising temperatures. 2 Earth's average temperature has risen by about 1.2°C since pre-industrial times. 3 Greenhouse gases, such as carbon dioxide, methane, and nitrous oxide, trap heat in Earth's atmosphere and contribute to climate change. 4 Deforestation, transportation and agriculture are the main contributors to greenhouse gas emissions. 5 Arctic Sea ice is melting at a very fast rate per decade, with significant consequences for global weather patterns. 6 Climate change is causing ocean acidification, which threatens the

What have you learnt about your Hero?

We have learnt that our hero is suffering as a result of climate change. Our hero has developed a lung problem due to the bad air quality in his locality.

If you could improve one thing for your Hero what would that be?

The thinks that the young people have to Lydiate because the climate change I learned that our hero is suffering because of climate change. The air quality in his area is very poor quality which is why we chose this topic to try and find a way of at least slowing down global warming.

Do you have any ideas for a potential solution? No matter how raw, share them with your Mentors for feedback.

I have some but I think the best one is work together and make a little effort. we have thought of a tech solution that we believe is original and very creative, an exhaust filter, is a device that can be installed at the end of any vehicle’s exhaust pipe to help reduce the emission of pollutants into the environment. The filter works by capturing and trapping harmful particles and gases, such as carbon monoxide, nitrogen oxide, and hydrocarbons, before they are released into the atmosphere. This helps to reduce the amount of pollutants that contribute to air pollution, which

Ask your Mentor anything …. This is a chance to ask your Mentors a direct question relating to your Big Idea.

Do we actually have to make a prototype of our tech solution?
