First and foremost, we hope you, and all those close to you, are all safe and well.
Our job of teaching is facing an enormous challenge. In most countries schools are closed and teachers need to adapt to a new reality of education. In spite of the difficulties, one can take advantage of the situation and develop innovative ways of exploring knowledge and show to our pupils how to adapt and adjust to never stop learning.
As a joint effort between IDiverSE, Open Schools for Open Societies and Open Astronomy Schools we invite you to participate in a global campaign called Design Thinking with the Moon
Join this challenge and engage your students and yourself in the observation of our closest neighbor in space, the Moon and develop your creativity by drawing the Moon while learning science, and share your findings with other participants around the world.
You can join a global community of teachers and learners who will share their observations of the Moon during a lunar cycle. No equipment is needed!
Just look to the Moon every day or night, and add your observations in a Moon journal. After a full cycle, share your log to the database, and compare it with others. You’ll be amazed with how much one can learn from this.
Please register using this online form until April 12 to receive instructions on how to join this exciting activity! Registration is free and the campaign will run through all year.
Participants will win certificates and be awarded digital badges after completing the challenge.
NUCLIO will support all participants through webinars and e-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org
This campaign is part of the partnership between:
- “Open Schools for Open Societies”, an initiative that provides a powerful framework for school leaders to engage, discuss and explore how their schools need to evolve, and
- Islands Diversity for Science Education, a project that brings Design Thinking into the school, promoting the collaboration between school and community in solving global and local problems.
Stay tuned to receive more initiatives and challenges that you can participate while staying home
