Program Overview - public - Global Challenge Award - 3 views

  •  
    Global Challenge Award's mission is "to provide high school students worldwide, the tools and confidence to solve global problems together" We do this by providing students with "authentic project-based learning experience" working in small global teams to solve climate change issues. To us, authentic learning experiences are those in which students have to put in significant effort over an extended duration of time, where there is external assessment and evaluation of the work and where the work is focused on a real world issue of climate change.
  •  
    WOW. This is an inspirational project for High School teachers and students - a challenge to solve the problem of climate change.
