The Squashed Tomato Challenge

In Nepal, many farmers living on the mountainside grow fruit and vegetables, including tomatoes. To earn a living they need to sell these at the local market.  The problem is getting to market involves a long, dangerous walk down the mountain side and over a river, at the end of which the tomatoes may well be a bit squashed.

Practical Action present the challenge to design, build and test a way of moving tomatoes without squashing them.

This project comes with a huge amount of helpful resources, with power points, posters, teacher and student notes, and certificates.
