Middle School Climate Change in Focus Video Challenge

Calling all Middle School Students…Enter the Climate Change In Focus Video Challenge!

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) along with the National Environmental Education Foundation (NEEF) have just launched an exciting video contest for middle school students called Climate Change in Focus. This contest asks middle school students to make a video that expresses why they care about climate change and what they are doing to reduce emissions or to prepare for its impacts.

Winning videos will be highlighted on the EPA website and the winners will receive cool prizes like a solar charging backpack. The first 100 contestants to enter will also receive a year’s subscription to National Geographic Kids Magazine. The deadline for submissions is March 10, 2014. Visit the website for details on how to enter. Click here for the details!

Welcome! This is the gateway to adventure and discovery

Through this blog pebble pups and junior members of the Colorado Springs Mineralogical Society can access their lessons, work on assignments and projects, and receive details about field trips in the Pikes Peak Region. This Internet program is also suitable for young people who are interested in Earth science but do not live near a rock club or gem and mineral society or for young people anywhere who want a deeper dive into these topics. The only requirement is that all participants must be members of the Colorado Springs Mineralogical Society and must fill out the CSMS membership form (under important websites) and send their registration and membership fee in. Steven Veatch is the senior instructor and will need an email from you with your name, address, phone number, and permission from your parents to participate in this program.
