5. 04. Activity: Brainstorming technological solutions to environmental challenges

The objective of this activity is to encourage students to think creatively and critically about environmental challenges and brainstorm technological solutions to address them. By engaging in this activity, students will develop their problem-solving skills and gain a deeper understanding of the intersection between technology and environmental sustainability.


Begin by highlighting some of the major environmental issues facing the world today, such as climate change, pollution, deforestation, and habitat loss. Focus on brainstorming technological solutions to a specific environmental challenge assigned to them (2-3 minutes)

Selecting Environmental Challenges, focus on:

·   Reducing plastic waste

·   Improving air quality in urban areas

·   Promoting renewable energy sources

·   Enhancing water conservation methods

·   Protecting biodiversity in ecosystems

Brainstorm as many technological solutions as possible within the given time frame. Think outside the box and consider both existing technologies and potential innovations. (5 minutes)

After the brainstorming session, each group will select one or two of their most promising ideas to present to the discussion section (2 minutes)

Check the others ideas and identify similar ideas and match with them to push forward these ideas (1-2 minutes)
