Looking to teach sustainability in to the young’uns in your life? Try the Sustainability Technology Education Project, or STEP.

There are 35 case studies on the STEP site, primarily aimed at key stage 4 students. These provide a range of examples of sustainable solutions to technology issues from around the world.

Each case study includes background information, a design story, product analysis and an introduction to values issues. There are also suggestions for practical activities and class discussions. Teachers have found the case studies useful both for whole class work and for independent projects.

Teachers’ notes, case studies, activities,links and more will get you started and keep you going.

Where do you find great classroom resources? Where do you showcase your students’ work? Tell us in the comments.
