myclimate will be an education partner for the Energy Challenge once again in 2018. The Energy Challenge is an initiative from EnergieSchweiz. The aim is to address energy saving potentials and the use of renewable energy in a playful way. With the competition for school children at the Energy Challenge, myclimate has created an interactive offering for school classes in middle school (years 4-6).
The Energy Challenge at muba
The Energy Challenge competition for school classes took place once again in the Energy Village of EnergieSchweiz at muba, at the end of April. The varied activities give the students the opportunity to learn in a playful way what it means to use energy responsibly. Around 450 students from 24 classes took part in the Energy Challenge in Basel in 2018.
In smaller groups they played various roles with tricky challenges. The students worked up a sweat, their fighting spirit was awakened, with each group doing their best to win as many points as possible for their class. Who can purchase the most climate friendly snack? How much electricity can be generated by riding a bike for 2 minutes? Who can build the tallest tower out of waste and who can recycle even under time pressure? How can climate tips be explained easily with a photo?
The challenge developed into a real competition due to the children’s ambition, and the joy of winning was correspondingly great. The prize draw among the winning classes in the ENERGY CHALLENGE 2018 at muba was won by year 4 of Schönenbuch primary school. Congratulations!
