So registration has been under way since the November 20 and I’m thrilled to tell you that we already have four different countries! France, Moldova, the United States and Singapore have all submitted teams and Moldova is in Clean Tech for the first time in the competition’s history! (Yeah, having new countries make me happy 🙂 ) But I’m greedy when it comes to this stuff, I admit that, I want more!
For 2017, there were 26 nations, even though there were fewer students than there were in 2016, the number of countries made me very happy. There are more nations and more students to take on the challenge of #SolvingClimateChange. But I’m not going to be able to do it by myself, I’m going to need help. If you’re reading this and are a high school student, if you know a high school student or are a science teacher, please consider sharing this. I mean I LOVE having schools submit teams year after year like Catlin Gabel School in Portland, Oregon (USA), The Bronx High School of Science, Raffles Girls’ School (Secondary) in Singapore or Bishops (Diocesan College) in South Africa, but there are more ideas just waiting to be created from schools that are still unknown to Clean Tech.
Well I’ll continue to do my thing like finding more schools, sending emails, answering questions and wondering who’s going to adopt this little kitten.
You keep doing what you do, going to class (or teaching class), learn new things, work on your idea (or lead your team) and brainstorm your paper idea (but don’t forget, you’ve got until April 13 to upload it). If you have questions, you can always contact me.
Best of luck to you and your entire team, I really hope I get a chance to meet you at Stony Brook University come July 2018! Oh and if you know someone who wants a kitten or you yourself want him, he’s free to adopt 🙂
THappy Holidays! T
