The Floating Garden Challenge is an exciting STEM challenge for students aged between 5-18 years old. It enables students to explore the science around floating and sinking and develop solutions to growing crops on flooded land.
Students will learn about the difficulty that farmers in Bangladesh and the UK experience trying to grow crops on land that is regularly flooded.
This challenge is perfect to reinforce a lesson on forces (floating and sinking), or as a STEM club, transition or British Science Week activity.
