Are you ready for the Energy Challenges?
Over the next few weeks, your class will explore the topics of sustainability and energy. What is sustainability? What is energy? What about energy consumption at your school? Daar ga je de aankomende weken achter komen.
As a true energy expert, you will then work in teams to investigate how your school could save energy. What savings ideas can your team explore? What would be a fun way to tell the rest of the school about your savings idea? Using our star poster, you will campaign at school to show everyone that your team has the best idea.
Of course, we will conclude the project with a smashing finale!
The star poster features 9 stars. To determine a star, you must complete an assignment. Make sure you and your Energy Challenges team get all the stars.
Identity is that which makes something or someone unique or distinctive. This may involve a person’s personal identity. Then you describe characteristics of a person such as name and age, as well as character traits. In this case, it’s about your team’s identity.
You will work on the identity of your team:
Map out what the current situation is at school (so don’t think of solutions yet).
Choose one of the elaborated concepts: who and what do we need? Set and distribute tasks. Elaborate on the idea.
What measures do you put in place to save energy? Are the savings measurable and visible on the monitoring equipment?
How do you reach as many people as possible and make them want to participate in your campapgne? Social media, videos and vlogs, posters, flyers, etc. Creativity and originality are rewarded extra!
How do you involve your parents and other organizations in your campaign? Through sponsorships and other contributions, opportunities are growing! He who does not dare does not win!
Make a nice presentation of your actions in the campaign.
Organize an event for your school and/or parents and local residents. Get them to save energy too!
Is your campaign having an effect after the finals? Show that the actions you have taken will continue to have an effect in the next school year.
Several times during the Energy Challenges, a Raging Reporter from Energy Challenges will visit. The Raging Reporter helps you discover how energy use is regulated at your school. The Raging Reporter will also guide you and your team in your quest for energy-saving measures and action plans.
You can always turn to the Raging Reporter. Do you have questions or just want to show what you made for the project? The Raging Reporter is wildly curious and happy to help.
