Project title:

How can we protect our school from floods?

Research question

How we can protect our school from flooding and what is the water permeability on our school grounds?

Identify the local environmental/climate problem you want to investigate

In this investigation we wanted to see how we can protect our school from floods and what the water permeability is on our school grounds. We chose this topic to investigate because a few years ago there was a huge flood in our country namely in Wallonia, located in the south of Belgium. In 2023 the “Westhoek” also flooded. The “Westhoek” lies in the northwest of Belgium. In the (near) future, floods are likely to occur closer to our school, that’s why we wanted to investigate how to protect our school from flooding.

Project topic

Describe how you plan to investigate the problem identified and which data you plan to analyse.
