Aimed at primary aged students, this STEM project provides a real-life context to explore the health and environmental problems faced by the 3 billion people globally who cook on open fires or traditional cooking stoves. Children are introduced to a family in Nepal and learn about indoor air pollution from their open stove and how this affects their lives. They then work in small groups to identify the problems caused by traditional cooking methods and develop designs and a model for an improved cooking stove and stove hood.
