Right now, students from kindergarten to eighth grade can enter the Siemens We Can Change the World Challenge.
The challenge encourages young students to confront the problems in their lives and neighborhoods and to share the solutions they discover with other participants around the country. There's the opportunity to learn. There's the opportunity to take action. In the end, students might even change the world.A joint effort of Siemens, Discovery Education, and NSTA, the We Can Change the World Challenge helps teachers educate students on sustainability issues by providing lesson plans, resource guides, and teaching materials. The goal is to create young "agents of change," equipped with the skills and knowledge to confront the challenges of the future.
The call for entries will remain open until January 31 for students grades K-5 and March 31 for students in grades 6-8.
Sign up today at the Siemens We Can Change the World Challenge website.
