Climate Smarter

Climate Smarter is an exciting interdisciplinary and curriculum aligned STEM project for Primary 5 to Secondary 2 pupils

This project is designed to enthuse and inspire pupils to think creatively to come up with solutions to the biggest global problems to face them, now, and in their future. The projects 16 lessons take them on a journey of investigation and experimentation to look at how we can tackle the climate emergency. The project covers 4 key topics; renewable energy, water, forestry and smart technologies.

The programme culminates in the pupils designing and building models of their future school, incorporating all their research into energy efficiency, smart controls, electricity generation, responsible water and sustainable building material use.
