Floods and Floating Schools
In parts of Bangladesh, the yearly floods can make it impossible for kids to get to school, so one man came up with an idea for making boats into schools.
If you were to create a different kind of school, what might it look like? How could it make learning different from the school you attend now?
Are there ideas you have for making your school a different place? If so, what might that look like? Can you explain a problem that your idea addresses? Can you prove that the problem is really a problem?
If so, and you can show that you’re right, it’s possible something might change, as having an idea based on proving something is a problem is one of the best paths toward something new.
