Some ideas and activities which can be delivered in school or at home
Environmental creative challenge
Local organisation, IVE, have made their latest Applied Creativity Lab free for everyone to access. The theme is #breathedeep and is open to anyone (aged 7+) to help find new ways to reduce air pollution, simply by being inventive. The programme includes a set of learning activities, which can be accessed by a group or as an individual. The activities have been designed to suit home learning or in school delivery.
Final ideas can be submitted to IVE to be assessed by a panel of industry specialists from science and engineering, climate groups, health, civil servants and marketers. The idea which is deemed to be the most original and applicable will be supported to take the idea to the next stage of development. The deadline for submissions is 17th July 2020.
