SOS: Sustainable outreach shelter challenge

SOS: Sustainable Outreach Shelter Challenge

Learners imagine themselves as Engineers and create a newspaper article describing how they’ve transformed a stadium into a place that provides shelter for those who need it most.

In your Challenge Pack, you’ll find everything you need to get your young people working on an amazing project, at school or at home.

This challenge is delivered by our partner Class Of Your Own. Visit their website for more information.
