Bronze Award: Future Travel
The British Science Association CREST Awards encourage students to take an investigative approach to science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) related projects. These resources are just a few ideas that could be used to help students gain an award.
These materials look at three possible projects that relate to sustainable travel.
• Communications project - students gather information and explain about ‘green’ transport policies, reducing and offsetting carbon footprints.
• Practical project - students investigate how to compare carbon dioxide emissions from various fuels and how carbon dioxide could be trapped instead of letting it escape into the atmosphere.
• Research project - students research information on how to reduce the carbon footprints left by people travelling to and from school, and in the transport of goods and materials used in school
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.
