How long will the project last and what is the time frame for participation?
The official phase of the 2017-18 Going Green project cycle will be launched in October 2017 spring 2018 (date tbd). This means that you will be able to use the materials starting in late September and contributions to the competition will be accepted until spring 2018 (exact date to follow).
We estimate that the proposed classroom work can be used to create a teaching unit of c. 5 weeks (with an average of 4 class periods per week). However, the materials are flexible and can easily be adapted to a shorter time frame. Additional materials can also be used to provide a more detailed and intensive approach.
Please also note that TeachAboutUS is going to be available after the official conclusion of the Going Green project, even though competition participation will not be possible anymore.
