Callia Web is delighted to have partnered with the Department of Earth Sciences at Royal Holloway University of London, in a competition for year 12 and 13 pupils to design a website to help answer the question:
How can science and technology be used to improve how we use our planet’s resources?
It is not the design of the website that is important but the message and ideas it conveys. The competition is to encourage sixth formers to think about how we can reduce humanity’s impact on Earth and help achieve the UN’s sustainability goals. Your idea may be something small and simple but potentially life-changing or it could be a grand scheme requiring trillions of dollars. Once you have your idea think about how you can communicate it to everyone on a one-page website. What is your key message and what is your call to action?
There is a prize of £250.
To find out more about the competition please go to the Earth Science Tools For Schools (ESTFS) Website. Whilst there you will also find some useful tools such as the water cycle simulator, carbon cycle simulator and a KISS climate model and more.
To enter please submit your design (a one page PDF file) on the ESTFS website by the 1st of July. We can’t wait to see all the entries although are a little nervous about having to pick a winner! Results will be announced on the 23rd of July.
