Science Hunters: Engineering for sustainable societies
Science Hunters: Engineering for Sustainable Societies will help children from under-represented backgrounds discover the many facets of engineering involved in sustainable development, and provide them with opportunities to apply their newfound knowledge by creating their own model sustainable solutions and communities in Minecraft.
Building on our previous experience and using our well-developed Science Hunters approach, we will collaborate with engineers to design and develop 12 sustainable, ecological engineering design-based sessions, linking engineering and engineers to the Sustainable Development Goals and future sustainable societal solutions. These will be delivered, alongside engineers, to schools and community settings.
The project is based in the Science Communication Unit and supported by a Royal Academy of Engineering Ingenious Award. It runs from May 2023 to July 2024.
