Take the Energy Literacy Challenge!

Wednesday, March 9, 2016

On March 19th, people around the globe will be switching off their lights for Earth Hour to raise awareness and encourage individuals, businesses, and governments to reduce their ecological footprints.

The conversation about smart energy choices and our environment doesn't have to end there!


WGSI is excited to announce that we've teamed up with Spongelab to present the Energy Literacy Challenge 2016. Featuring content from Let's Talk Science, Mindfuel, and Spongelab this 5-week initiative is designed to educate youth about modern energy choices, sustainability, and the impacts of energy generation on the environment. 

We are also thrilled to announce that both Waterloo Region District School Board and Waterloo Catholic District School Board will be promoting the Energy Literacy Challenge in their schools.

Beginning March 21st, students and teachers can access the Energy Literacy Challenge portal from the homepage free of charge. Remember to check back often - a new game, interactive, or video will be unveiled each day, and the more you explore, the higher you'll climb on the Energy Literacy Leaderboard!
