Project “Our school”
eTwinning projects for 2019-2020
About the project
The earth’s surface temperature has risen over the last 100 years. Atmospheric Administration Scientists believe carbon dioxide pollution is the primary culprit. The effects are highly complex on the world . Furthermore, within the past several years, scientists have found that oxygen (O2) in the atmosphere has been dropping, and at higher rates than just the amount that goes into the increase of CO2 from burning fossil fuels .
Mastermind project aims to teach students how to deal with the environmental problem of the increase Co2 , how to think and act to reduce the abundance of Co2 in the atmosphere , how to deal with environmenal challenges and problems that our communities face, and how to be able to spread awareness throughout their communities.
Additionally, Masterminds project offers a great chance for students to practice their social, emotional and digital competencies. In addition,the project offers a great chance for the students to practise their foreign language.
