School of the Month: will you be our next winner?
Posted by Water Explorer Team on 31 March 2015

Springfield School in Portsmouth were the UK School of the Month winners in February and won a digital camera and 500 bonus points for their efforts!


Each month we assess teams progress in six key areas to see who is going to be winning school of the month:


  1. Points earned
  2. Surveys completed
  3. Challenges completed
  4. Quality and quantity of blogs
  5. Impact
  6. Values


We’ll be selecting the winning school for March very soon, so to be in with a chance of winning upload your team photo via the edit school profile link and make sure your team is doing all of the six things above. Good luck!!


Completing Challenges will help you climb the Water Explorer leaderboard. In addition, your project work can be used to support CREST and Eco-Schools Awards.

CREST Award (British Science Association)
Each year, over 32,000 CREST Awards are undertaken by 11-to-19-year-olds, giving them opportunities to explore real-world science, technology, engineering and maths projects in an exciting way.

Use Water Explorer Challenges as a basis for a CREST Bronze Award. To get the Award, you’ll need to spend at least 10 hours on your project. Find out more about CREST Bronze Award here.
