Can High Schoolers Solve Climate Change Problems?

"Over the next year, top high school students across Vermont and the US will be partnering with peers in Korea, China and India to find real-world engineering solutions to help in the fight against climate change. Working together through on-line challenges, teams will develop a business plan for a practical product. Winners will receive college scholarships and other awards. To develop this Global Challenge program, the University of Vermont’s College of Engineering and Mathematical Sciences (CEMS), in partnership with Global Challenge, LLC, has been awarded a three-year National Science Foundation (NSF) grant of $891,000. The goal: help American high school students strengthen their skills in math, science, engineering and critical thinking, while learning about global business practices. Students and their mentors can join the program now at <a href=""></a>. The sign-up deadline is October 15, final designs will be reviewed by judges in April 2007, and winners announced June 1, 2007."
