Hey, high school teachers! The Siemens Foundation, Discovery Education and the National Science Teachers Association (NSTA) are partnering again this year to educate, empower and engage students and teachers nationwide to become “Agents of Change” in improving their communities through the Siemens We Can Change the World Challenge . This year the Challenge expands to high school, by inviting students in grades 9-12 to join the effort to meet the environmental challenges of our age.
In keeping with the Challenge’s overall mission to build a more sustainable world, high school participants are encouraged to form teams of up to four students, research an energy-related issue using scientific investigation, and create a replicable solution using web-based curriculum tools powered by Discovery Education.
This new phase of the Siemens We Can Change the World Challenge kicks off today at an exclusive screening of Discovery Channel‘s new documentary LIFE at Philadelphia’s renowned Franklin Institute in conjunction with the NSTA National Conference. Teachers, students and mentors can log on to www.wecanchange.com for more information on the Siemens We Can Change the World Challenge.
