The Grangemouth Flood Protection Scheme (GFPS) Primary STEM Programme is aimed at Level 2 (P6-7/age 10-12) young people, in both schools and community groups. And covers the topics:
Why we need flood protection.
What job roles are involved in a flood protection project.
What solutions are available and what is the cost/benefit of each.
What solution would the pupils select and why.
The programme runs from 9th January until 31st March 2023, however the timeline is flexible and lesson structure can be adapted to suit teacher requirements.
A recorded teacher training session can be accessed here.
The class of the winning group will receive a £100 Amazon voucher, with the classes of two further highly commended groups receiving a £50 Amazon Voucher each. A £50 Amazon Voucher is also available for the winning Community Group.
Details of, and resources for the GFPS Secondary Programme will follow later in 2023.
