Our Idea

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

We find that climate change is something that affects us and people our age. it is always in the news and it is a relevant topic to our lives.

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

it affects us in more way than we initially thought. eg; makes the weather warmer - reason for our heatwaves. We have learnt that our hero suffer the effects of climate change like us and that she is trying to combat them as well.

What have you learnt about your Hero?

I would like to solve the flooding problem as it disrupts her farming. I believe that by digging a stream it would create another path for the water to go to, add in stones for drainage. Another solution would be by growing crops that need a lot of water such as beetroot to help absorb the water. We would improve the tools she has to combat climate change, eg; more solar panels in her garden, To help against Climate change we could encouraging everyone in our school to use less power, spreading info and posters on how to be more sustainable

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

Have you any suggestions for us?

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

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

What is the most important thing you have learnt so far?

We enjoyed the activity of turning circles into other objects and also the toast directions exercise

What would you like to learn more about?

we would like to learn more about how we can combat climate change in our day to day lives. we want to be able to live a more sustainable life and protect the planet for future generations.

The Big Idea would be even better if ...
