Disney's Planet Challenge

Disney's Planet Challenge "is a project-based learning environmental competition for classrooms across the United States. DPC teaches kids about science and conservation while empowering them to make a positive
impact on their communities and planet."  The competition is open to both elementary (3-5) and middle school students.  Interested in the challenge?  The dates are below.

You can learn more about the challenger as well as view some previous winners to see what your kids might be up against in the competition and to start getting several ideas.  There is also a portfolio gallery that will help students get a grasp of the contest and what it will require.

Got some motivated kids and interested in project based learning?  Got some kids who might need some motivation like a trip to Disney World?  Then try out Disney's Planet Challenge.

  1. Very cool! The trip to Disney world would be excellent motivation for my students...but beyond that it looks like a lot of fun to take part in!
