Engineers Without Borders UK (EWB)
This collection is produced by Engineers Without Borders UK (EWB) , an international development organisation that aims to remove barriers to development through engineering. It contains resources which challenge children to discuss big issues facing the modern world and the challenges this poses for engineers trying to find solutions to these global problems.
These active workshops are a mix of presentations, quizzes, games and hands-on experience and are intended to encourage critical thinking. They highlight issues such as global water scarcity, the challenges people face when sourcing water, maintaining a water supply in developing countries, shelter deprivation and the role of the engineers in solving these problems. There are four age-specific modules, each aimed at the appropriate level of technical understanding and learning style. Although initially designed as part of an outreach programme, each resource pack consists of a presentation, extensive teachers' notes and all classroom materials for running the activities.
