Statwars® Climate Change Challenge
STATWARS: Climate Change Challenge is real-world immersive competition that puts pupils in the driver’s seat to impact real change. Our Climate Change Challenge is a cross-curricular study involving mathematics, science, geography, computing and art and design where pupils gather and collect data to understand their own carbon footprint and present it in creative ways to educate and inform others on how to make small changes to their lives for the betterment of the planet. They learn from real data scientists on the most impactful ways of using and presenting data to drive real change in the world they live in.
As well as creating eye-catching, easy-to-understand infographics, they will also put their formal English writing skills to the test, as they will construct informative and persuasive letters to their local MPs to rally for their support in their quest for a greener future.
When we collect, analyse and contextualise data and information, we gain insight, understanding and the ability to make a difference.
The STATWARS® Climate Change Challenge vision is to empower and educate pupils to tackle climate change, by providing a project that delivers meaningful and engaging mathematics, numeracy and data literacy to pupils!
We believe the data we collect can inform meaningful research and decision making, with its careful application revolutionising our understanding of how to manage the Climate Change Challenge ahead of us! We need young people to be a part of that journey…
How does STATWARS Climate Change Challenge work in your school?
The STATWARS Climate Change Challenge asks pupils to capture asks pupils to capture their own data on their household energy use, transportation and food consumption, and link these to existing datasets on C02 production to identify 3 changes they can personally commit to in their daily lives that will lower their individual carbon footprints. Pupils work in small teams, developing and using their data skills to communicate their commitment to these changes, in the form of a manifesto
