National Geographic GeoChallenge Webinar - Wednesday, December 5th @ 11:00am
What Will You Do to Save the Planet? Take the #NatGeoChallenge!
Did you know that 500 million plastic straws are used every day? That eight million tons of plastic flow into the ocean every year? We need creative and actionable ideas from young people to literally save the planet. Afterschool programs are invited to take on the 2018-19 GeoChallenge—Tackling Plastic! Teams of students (grades 5-8) will investigate the urgent issue of plastic pollution in our waterways. If your team is ready, you can submit your solutions by January 15th to join the national competition and win cash prizes.
The GeoChallenge is free to register and download all of the activities you will need to help your kids engage, think, act, and impact! Students will gain skills in research and storytelling, collaboration, videography, innovative design, and mapmaking. Empower your students to change the world! Learn more in this video on how afterschool programs can participate.
