Regreen the Desert

Regreen the Desert inspires pupils to develop ideas to address a real-life problem caused by climate change. Their challenge is to capture rain water to irrigate crops for a community in Sudan.

Regreen the Desert is an exciting STEM challenge suitable for pupils aged 8–16. Another wonderful lesson created by Practical Action, it can be used to deliver parts of a science, design and technology, and engineering curriculum.

It would also make a great outdoor learning activity and, if you’re feeling adventurous, could be extended into building an irrigation system for a school garden! Download the resources here or visit Practical Action
