Produced by Practical Action, these materials contain ideas and support for students undertaking a CREST award. There are stimulus materials that help students look at an issue of sustainable development.
These materials look at the provision of sustainable housing. They describe different construction methods, such as mud, clay, iron and wood, as well as how to construct houses that are resistant to natural disasters like floods or earthquakes.
The 'Getting Started' guide has teacher guidance on how to link the projects with the CREST awards scheme from the British Science Association.
HEALTH and SAFETY
Any use of a resource that includes a practical activity must include a risk assessment. Please note that collections may contain ARCHIVE resources, which were developed at a much earlier date. Since that time there have been significant changes in the rules and guidance affecting laboratory practical work. Further information is provided in our Health and Safety guidance.
