It has been a while Year 13!…

An interesting article here about sustainable technological fixes to global problems.

You will be assessing sustainability of the technological fixes you have researched (so you MUST remember your printed tables on Thursday!) but here are some additional ideas you might want to research further.

Year 13 Technological Fix

Please find a series of links below that relate to Thursday’s lesson on reasons for variations in technological access. If you get the opportunity, have a read before the lesson. If not, you are in a computer room for P4 so you will have the chance to look through these then…

Hi folks,

I’m not in school today but attached is a PowerPoint that you should use to research ‘radical technologies’ to reduce the threat of energy insecurity. You have an ICT room booked for Thursday to complete this so just initial research to take place during P3 today, please (some of these are a little old now so by all means complete your own search instead of using the links provided!)
