UNDERTAKING A PROJECT

UNDERTAKING PROJECTS

A team of high-school students is first organized and at least two mentors are identified from universities.  The size of a team ranges from five to fifty members.  With guidance from their university mentors and supervisors, the team must then complete at least one geography project or venture and one community service during the academic year. At the end of the academic year, teams come together to showcase their efforts through interscholastic tournaments. These competitions provide an opportunity to not only show off their efforts, but, also, “benchmark” themselves against other teams for future improvements. The students will make their presentation in a PowerPoint form to show to their audience the projects they undertook during that period of time. The “referees” for these competitions come from the university communities, as well as the civic, non-geography, and education communities, giving the competitions a true “real world” perspective which helps build team competency. Students will be supported to tackle problems such as global warming, destruction of our reefs and forests, loss of important plants and animals, pollution, increasing poverty, unemployment, devaluation, and nutritional problems, which are some of the well known results of inappropriate development WHICH NEEDS TO BE SOLVED.

    • Hi, thanks for your concern to participate in the project. The project is done by Senior High School students under the guiding eyes of their university mentors or project ambassadors, who mentor and guide students to undertake the project. You can therefore apply to be a project ambassador for a particular school or group.
