It’s World Environment Day and the kids think the planet needs a lot of loving so we are thrilled to launch our new online program where you and you students are invited to explore Green Lab Challenge, an online experience to inspire your students to explore the outside world.
Green Lab – where the natural world is your laboratory and where Kids ask the Big Questions:
- Can increasing our canopy cool our city?
- Why isn’t bush forever, forever?
- What does that bird eat?
- Is this plant important?
- What was here before?
This online version – the Green Lab Challenge was developed to get you connected to your Green Lab space, learn some new skills and think about putting your Green Lab project into action at your school, local bushland or in your own backyard.
The online tools provide a pathway for students to learn about their local bushland through Citizen Science and HASS activities. Students can work through the modules, each having deliverables that need to be completed. Simply upload completed work to the Challenge site. Students are awarded Green Lab Micro Credentials when they complete activities.
At the end of the online program your students will be ready to start work on their own Green Lab project at your school or local bushland.
The Green Lab Challenge includes access to online teacher professional learning, online tutorials for your classroom from our Citizen Scientists and HASS presenters, log on instructions for students and parent permission forms.
Green Lab is a Millennium Kids Citizen Science program, funded by the Western Australian Government’s State Natural Resource Management Program and supported by Department of Biodiversity, Conservation and Attractions and Trillion Trees.
Millennium Kids Inc is a member of the Sustainable Schools WA alliance and the Green Lab project will provide significant opportunities for collaboration to strengthen resources for schools. Find out more Final About Green Lab Challenge
