This is a practical session looking at the design and construction of emergency or temporary shelters. Pupils will look at shape, size and proportion and will build a variety of different shelters using different materials.

In a practical, innovative and enjoyable style the activity can be designed to suit your needs. A variety of challenges and team-working scenarios are available to suit physical ability and location.
