Project Jugaad


What will you be doing in ten years; engineer, doctor, businessman, architect?Mathematics has a hugely important role in the technology that is all around us and which we take for granted every day; from your mobile phone and laptop to the systems that keep you safe on a plane or the trials which take place to ensure the medicines we need are effective. 

Project Jugaad aims to get you to discover more about the role of maths in technology through a collaborative international activity which this year will focus on green technology.

The Brief:

Choose an area of Green Technology that interests you and investigate the role of mathematics in order to produce a presentation and share your findings with other groups.

Your group needs to produce a digital presentation and a paper version to put up in your classroom. The best 4 projects will be asked to complete a Skype Presentation in front of both classes. Be creative both in terms of your ideas but also your presentation. Try and promote your group's ideas through social media, you could even come up with an advertising campaign to raise your groups profile.


In your group you need to organise yourselves into the following positions-

1. Project Manager (Leader)

2. Chief Researcher (Responsible for leading the research and coming up with the title of the project)

3. Digital Engineer (Responsible for coordinating digital presentation and printing out a poster version for class)

4. Communications Director (Responsible for ensuring all pupils are informed and fully involved; tasks are sent to the appropriate coordinator; and, if the group's project is shortlisted, coordinating the Skype presentation).
