A STEM project where pupils explore problems faced by people who cook on open fires or traditional cooking stoves. The lesson resources can be used to deliver parts of the UK's Science and Design and Technology curriculum or as an enrichment day. The project offers opportunities for pupils to work in groups to explore images and videos that introduce the context and people of Nepal. Pupils then design and model ideas for improved cook stoves and/or stove hoods. The resource includes teacher's notes, a PowerPoint presentation, a photograph-based starter activity and project sheets for pupils to capture their research and design ideas, and their evaluation activities.
