EF Education First in Cambridge are organizing the fourth annual Global Challenge student competition at Cambridge Rindge and Latin School (CRLS). It’s a three-month high school competition designed to provide experiential, project-based learning opportunities for CRLS students while tackling locally relevant issues. This year, we are asking students to develop innovative plans to reduce energy use in Cambridge as part of the City’s effort to win the Georgetown University Energy Prize.

The mentors coach the students and help them create realistic, implementable projects:

  • The time commitment for a mentor is approx. five hours divided into two-three sessions between early October and early December.
  • The sessions will be held at Cambridge Rindge and Latin School.
  • Mentors are welcome to dedicate more time throughout the competition or attend the final event, although this is not required.
  • We will assign mentors to student team(s) and facilitate the entire process. Within a couple weeks, we will have the final dates and times confirmed.
