Class Zero Emission is now a reality! Since it opened its doors on March 2nd, this educational workshop has been attracting classrooms from all over Belgium, from the 5th to the 12th grade.

Since its opening two weeks ago, 300 students have already attended Class Zero Emission. Through a 4-hour interactive journey through the meanders of climate change, polar regions and science, and sustainable development, students take part in a variety of activities:

  • learn the difference between the natural and additional greenhouse effect;
  • discover the polar regions in 3-Dimensions;
  • become a polar explorer ;
  • conduct scientific experiences on the melting polar ice and the albedo effect;
  • take part in an interactive quiz: "Who wants to be an ice cube millionaire";
  • share ideas on how to reach the objective of "zero emission".

Teachers and their students have shown a lot of enthusiasm during the Class Zero Emission workshop. The most popular activity being the interactive quiz "Who wants to be an ice cube millionaire". For some, Class Zero Emission opens a chapter on climate change in the classroom; for others, this visit closes a particular study project. One thing is certain: this new pedagogical workshop fills an existing gap in the classrooms and tackles the climate change debate in a fun and interactive manner.
