- Thank you for your interest and work in the Envirothon program. If you have any questions, please email email@example.com
Here are our current plans:
- We are hosting a scavenger hunt via the online Goosechase platform – https://www.goosechase.com/how-it-works/playing. This scavenger hunt is filled with fun station related missions that get the students outside exploring nature. Additional questions will be released every couple of weeks and the team that has the most points by the time the game ends in December – will win a prize! More details below.
- There will be four station kits released – two in the fall and two in the spring. These kits are meant to be a ‘lesson plan in a bag/box’ and replace what would have been the in-person workshops. These kits will have hands-on training activities for the students to use and learn from. Your local conservation district should be contacting you soon for coordination!
- There will be short informational youtube videos posted on our youtube channel! As well as curated video playlists that the stations put together with relevant educational videos focused around the station objectives.
- There is a possibility of an in person review day or an in person joint workshop in the spring depending on COVID-19 regulations.
- The field day competition in May is still up in the air on whether it is virtual or in-person. However, IF it is in person – it will be on Thursday May 19th at the Tolland Agricultural Center in Vernon, CT.
Our fall scavenger hunt was launched on 10/12 via the online Goosechase platform – https://www.goosechase.com/how-it-works/playing. This scavenger hunt is filled with fun station related missions that get the students outside exploring nature. Additional questions will be released every couple of weeks and the team that has the most points by the time the game ends in December – will win a prize! Soils, Forestry, Wildlife, Current Issue and CT Envirothon Trivia questions are currently released.
Here is an introductory pdf for you and your team to review. An important thing to note is that a smartphone/ipad is needed to download the app and participate – since it is in a team format students can work together. This is not a required activity but we do encourage teams to try it out and participate if they are able to – the missions are sculpted around station objectives so it’s a great learning opportunity. It should be fun! Advisors are welcome to join their school team to see what their team and other teams are submitting! CT Envirothon will be monitoring the submissions.
When someone from the team logs on, they will be prompted to join a team or create one. Please create one unless someone else from your team has already. We encourage teams to create their own environmentally related team names – please include your school/town in the name. For example, the Coventry Cardinals, Coventry Conserves, etc.! Please also add an “access code” so only your teammates will be able to join your team. We recommend 4-6 people per team. Teams can join the scavenger hunt at any point, but the sooner the better!
You will be given the game code a game password when you register for the program!
Please let us know if you have any questions!
