[GLOWS] 2021 Kootenay Contraption Contest

November 1 - November 30

The Kootenay Contraption Contest is back! This annual GLOWS event invites students in Kindergarten to Grade 8 to imagine, design and illustrate a “contraption” that solves a problem.

Through this contest, GLOWS is encouraging students to use critical thinking skills, design thinking, problem solving, innovation, and develop creative pitch skills! Students love the opportunity to use their limitless imaginations, and to fully experience how cool it is to bring their ideas to life through design.

The Kootenay Contraption Contest is generously sponsored by FortisBC.

For this year’s GLOWS Kootenay Contraption Contest, we challenge individual students and entire classes to come up with the most creative, most imaginative “contraption” they can dream up to solve this challenge:

THE YEAR IS 2050. THE CLIMATE PLAN TO SIGNIFICANTLY REDUCE GREENHOUSE GAS (GHG) EMISSIONS BY NOW WAS UNSUCCESSFUL. THE GLOBAL TEMPERATURE HAS INCREASED AND MORE FREQUENT AND INTENSE DROUGHTS, STORMS, HEAT WAVES, RISING SEA LEVELS, MELTING GLACIERS AND WARMING OCEANS ARE HARMING ANIMALS, DESTROYING THE PLACES THEY LIVE, AND NEGATIVELY IMPACTING PEOPLE’S HEALTH, LIVELIHOODS AND COMMUNITIES. WHAT CONTRAPTION WILL YOU CREATE TO HELP IMPROVE YOUR LIFE IN THIS NEW WARMER CLIMATE?
