Mission: Fight Malaria Challenge 2016
GSK’s legacy of fighting malaria stretches back more than a century and we've recently teamed up with Comic Relief to combat the disease - could your students join the battle against malaria too?
Why take part?
Malaria still claims nearly 500,000 lives every year. Our Challenge brings this important real-world issue to life in the classroom with thought-provoking content linked to the UK science curricula.
We would like your students to come up with ideas and innovative solutions that could help to eradicate this disease. Students will need to select one of four topic areas to focus on: Bed Nets, Education, New Technologies or Mosquito Breeding Grounds. Developed with teachers, the Challenge encourages students to use investigative, practical problem-solving and teamworking skills.
Use the film above to introduce the Challenge to your students and download the Challenge resources. Teacher and student Challenge packs contain fact sheets to help develop ideas and suggest hands-on practical investigations. You'll also find posters and a student-facing presentation. You'll need to submit the entry form before 20th October 2016.
