Charting the Course for 21st Century Learning

Posted by Heather Sullivan on July 3, 2009

I’m pleased to tell you about an exciting new learning opportunity from The Walt Disney Company called Disney’s Planet Challenge, a project-based environmental competition for students in grades 4-6. With collaboration from curricular experts at the K-12 Alliance and the National Science Teachers Association, Disney’s environmental team has crafted a program that gets children to think and act environmentally at school and at home.

Disney Planet Challenge

Until now, Disney’s Planet Challenge was available in the United States only to schools in California and Florida, but the program has been expanded to school districts nationwide this year to address growing demand.

Hailed as an empowering, one-of-a-kind experience by participating educators from previous years, this is one of the most significant initiatives of its kind ever to be offered to K12 schools. My colleagues at District Administration and I are proud to be working with Disney on this project, helping to inform school leaders like yourself about this valuable program. In fact, you may already have seen information about Disney’s Planet Challenge in the pages of our magazine and on our Web site. I encourage you to get involved with this important program.
