Delivered in Bristol schools by a Stantec volunteer, this free experience includes a presentation and a hands-on activity.
Students will form groups and plan out a city by drawing it on a large piece of paper, and then use recycling (which needs to be collected in advance) to build their city.
The presentation includes information on the different careers and skills that relate to the activity. There will also be information about the construction industry, recycled materials in construction and the importance of sustainable development.
This is good for older primary and younger secondary and teaches the students about city planning and also the importance of recycling.
There is no associated cost but the school/students will need to provide some recycling to build their sustainable city out of along with basic craft materials.
