Helping people

Humanitarian engineers aim to improve the lives of people living in, or vulnerable to poverty in the developing world. They create, design, develop, or improve technologies to support the sustained improvement of local communities. The resources in this list focus on a range of global issues including energy, climate change and disaster risk reduction. They can be used in class, as an applied project or as part of a STEM challenge or engineering day. Many link into popular topics that children will learn about at primary and contain elements of D & T, science and literacy.
