Environmental Mind Grind

ScheduleStudy Guide

The Environmental Mind Grind is an academic, trivia-based competition where high school students compete against each other answering questions focused on: climate change, energy, forests, transportation and air quality, waste, water, and species and spaces.

“The Environmental Mind Grind was a fantastic event that was very well organized and presented as students learn and raise awareness on environmental conditions affecting us all.”
Mr. Newton

Green Team Teacher Sponsor, WJ Mouat
