A Healthier City
How can we make our cities healthy again?
Students examine the health impact of life in our cities, assessing how air and water pollution affects human health at a cellular level and the function of our organs.
Students must create a public health campaign to warn people of these health risks and to persuade the Government to take action to reduce the prevalence of pollution!
Measuring pollution. Students will learn how air and water pollution is measured. They will then complete experiments to measure the PPM in their local area and to collect and analyse a water sample to assess how polluted it is
Modelling lungs. Students will simulate the functioning of the lungs and will then complete an experiment modelling the journey of air pollution through the body until it lodges in a person’s lungs. Students will use this to explore the pollutant’s impact on our organs
