If you’ve been thinking about applying for one of the LIVE GREEN teacher grants that are available, you’ve got a few more days to do it. The deadline has been pushed back to June 15th, 2008. If you haven’t thought about it yet, why on earth not??
Discovery Education and General Motors have partnered up to provide 40 educators in public middle and junior high schools with $1000 each to implement inventive classroom lessons on the environment or renewable energy initiatives. Not only that, but grant winners will receive a web-based training on Green intiatives and a digital camera to help document their experiences.
In order to apply, all you need to do is submit a 750 word essay explaining how they will advance their students’ learning about sustaining resources through the use of new and emerging technologies. Essays should demonstrate vision, creativity, and a novel way of presenting environmental and energy concepts.
