Over the course of the Challenge, we will be offering a number of opportunities for your team to learn more, ask questions, and get feedback on your design. Be sure to check back regularly on this page to learn about upcoming learning sessions and to sign-up for feedback or mentorship sessions.

Learning Sessions

Each week between the kick-off event in January and the submission due date (March 31), Team Planet will be offering at least one virtual learning session. These sessions will relate to the Challenge themes - EARTH (food and soil systems) and FIRE (energy and transportation systems), to the problems we see from climate injustices in these areas, and to solutions that are out there to address these problems. As a class or team, can join sessions live to ask questions, or you can watch them later.
