Fighting climate change becomes interactive with the freeCleanopolis VRapp for iOS and Android by Groupe EDF. Students learn about CO2 and battle along with Captain Clean in the fight against climate change. Assisted by their faithful companion, Tobby, students and Captain Clean explore a 3D city and discover its four districts. The app features eight minigames in which students must reduce the emissions of greenhouse gases in each district. Quizzes let students evaluate their ecological footprint and learn how to improve it. And a movietheater plays an educational film starring Igloo the penguin, who explains climate change. For an immersive experience and a wow effect, students can use 3D glasses (cardboards). Cost: Free
The National Fish and Wildlife Foundation (NFWF) is seeking proposals through its Developing the Next Generation of Conservationists initiative, which connects youth to the outdoors by providing financial support for conservation education and employment programs.
The Open Meadows Foundation offers grants of up to $2,000 for projects that promote gender, racial, and economic justice, and are led by and benefit women and girls, particularly those from vulnerable communities. The projects should reflect the diversity of the community in both its leadership and its organization, and promote racial, social, economic, and environmental justice.
Students can take their nature knowledge up a notch with Seek, a freeiOSphoto-identification app from iNaturalist that encourages outdoor exploration and learning by harnessing image recognition technology to help users identify plants and animals from their photos.
