Practical Action Solar Challenge
Jun 28 all-day

If you are looking for a STEM challenge that gets pupils thinking about electricity in a real-world context then check out the new Solar Challenge from Practical Action.

Set in rural southern Zimbabwe where few villages have access to mains electricity, pupils investigate how to make different circuits which include solar cells. They then look at the requirements for electricity by different people in a community and make decisions on how a fixed amount of solar cells should be allocated based on needs.
