In Year 2, we looked at the effect that climate change is having on Sudan. They experience deforestation, flash flooding and droughts, which make it difficult to grow crops to eat and sell.
We designed a water irrigation system that would collect water during flash flooding, and dispense the water during a drought to water the crops.
We looked at different variables that would affect our model, and we investigated how the water pressure affects the distance the water can reach to. We closely followed a design brief that stated our product should be able to; collect and dispense rain water, water crops up to 15cm away, and be able to turn the flow of water on/off during drought periods.
We made, tested and evaluated our products.
