Climate Challenge Champions

Climate Challenge Champions

Darwin High School entered two teams, ReLeaf and No Planet, in the Darwin City Council annual Climate Change Challenge on 1 June. The Climate Change Challenge gives the participating students an opportunity to explore environmental issues on both a local and global scale.

Now in its fifth year the challenge consisted of a total of 10 teams from schools around the Darwin region. The challenge had three categories: a quiz; devising and building a model a renewable energy device from recycled components; and preparing an environment policy delivered to the judges. Both teams enthusiastically answered questions and presented their ideas to the judges and audience. The students developed innovative ideas and solutions in a supportive and fun competition.

The winning team on the night was No Planet B. The team included Michael Neil, Morgan Gurry, Eboni Hawkins, Troy Mumford and Maxwell Youn. They were presented with their prize by the Lord Mayor Katrina Fong Lim. All the teams would like to thank Darwin City Council for making the challenge fun and thought-provoking; and Mr Valle (DHS Science Teacher) for supporting their participation in the event.

It was a very interesting activity and allowed teams to explore different ideas and concepts associated with climate change - Troy Mumford

It was really an enjoyable night and a great opportunity to meet other people from a range of schools. It was fun to see what the other teams came up with for each challenge - Eboni Hawkins
