Going Green With Prizes
If you are a middle-school teacher or administrator and you wanted to enter the We Can Change the World Challenge, but didn’t really know how, there will be a series of explanatory Webinars today (January 13 at 4:30 PM), Wednesday (January 14, at 5:30 and 6:45 PM) and Thursday (January 15, at 5:30 PM). The contest, the rules and the prizes will be discussed. Sponsored by Siemens, the National Science Teachers Association and Discovery, the contest is looking for groups of two or three middle-school students and a teacher or mentor to identify a key environmental issue in their school or community and create a solution to the problem. A winning team from each state will compete for a slew of prizes and an appearance on Discovery’s 24-hour Planet Green channel. The due date of March 15 is coming up quickly, so it’s time to get started.
