Siemens We Can Change the World Challenge
K-12 Students Invited to Tackle Environmental Issues for the Third Annual Siemens We Can Change the World Challenge
Deadline: March 15, 2011
The Siemens Foundation, Discovery Education, and the National Science Teachers Association have announced the launch of the third annual Siemens We Can Change the World Challenge, a program designed to educate, empower, and engage students and teachers across the United States to become “Agents of Change” in identifying and solving environmental problems.
Now expanded to include high school students, the third year of the challenge encourages all students, from kindergarten through grade 12, to team up with their classmates to create replicable solutions to environmental issues in their schools (grades K to five), community (grades six to eight), and world (grades nine to twelve).
Teams will be judged on both their ability to create a positive, measurable solution to a local sustainability issue or challenge using scientific methodology and their ability to explain how the solution can be replicated by other communities. Student and teacher/mentor prizes, which vary according to grade level, include savings bonds and school grants.
Teachers, students, and mentors can visit the program’s Web site for complete application information and resources, and to register for the challenge.
