Project briefs will be released on Wednesday 6th September 2017.
Each team will decide what project they want to do (focused on addressing/achieving one or more of the SDGs), and will have the opportunity to submit their plans for feedback from Future Foundations prior to implementation.
We want to support your students to deliver high quality projects.
1) Idea Generation
September to October 2017
During this phase we will provide feedback on project ideas
2) Project Implementation
October 2017 to March 2018
Teams implement their project plans and turn their ideas into reality
3) Competition Submission
Team reflection and submision of evidence of impact
Participants in the competition will work in a team of between 3 and 7 students (self-selecting).
The competition is aimed at students aged 11 to 16 years in the 2017-18 academic year, however if you have students who are younger/older wishing to take part we will not exclude your participation.
The winning team will be invited to attend the COBIS GSL Catalyst Programme in China, December 2018
Prize excludes travel expenses and is limited to up to 7 students
Participants in this programme are entitled to a discounted place on our other GSL programmes
All participants will receive a named certificate at the end of the programme
All submissions received on time will receive feedback on their projects
To find out more, we are inviting schools to identify a teacher who will coordinate the competition internally.
The competition will launch in early September 2017, with the release of the project challenges. Registered schools will be the first to receive the information. Lead teachers should therefore register to confirm your interest in the competition. During registration you can also ask any questions you have about the competition.
