Practical Action have announced the winners of their Beat the Flood competition.

Set on the fictitious island of Watu, the challenge got pupils to think about how to help communities be better prepared for flooding. Working as a team, pupils had to design and make a model of a home able to withstand the effects of flooding, then test it by standing it in water and blasting it with a hose pipe!
