This resource looks at the impact of climate change, in particular flooding and drought, and how science can be used to mitigate against it. Students first explore perceptions about climate change, then look at ways to communicate the significance of climate change to different groups of people. They then explore how crops are damaged post flooding in Bangladesh and look at options scientists and technologists can offer to give communities better food security. After investigating factors involved in the loss of water in plants through transpiration, students consider the impact of drought on food security and land use. Curriculum links include climate change, evaporation, food security, global warming, transpiration, transport in plants, stomata, adaptation and osmosis.
