I’m Karine from Pessac near Bordeaux in France. I joined the discussions last year and am back this year with a new group of 17 16-17 year old students.
They calculated their carbon footprint and have been looking for information on environmental problems, the causes and solutions and are now ready to exchange with the students in the other countries.
We’ll connect tomorrow from 3 to 4 pm for a nice chat.
I do hope you’ll join us!

The first classes from the September 2012 ISCFC session have pins on the map !!
Welcome to: Michelle Hock and her AP & Intro Environmental Studies students from Sunlake High School in Land O Lakes, Florida, USA; Thomas Martinez (AP Bio), Marisa Abrams (AP Bio), Leah Bielski (Anatomy & Physiology) and Nick Scipione (Chemistry) and their students from Glenbard East High School in Lombard, Illinois, USA; and Elisabeth Childers and her Marine Biology students from Glenbard East High School in Union City, California, USA.
We also are excited to welcome back the CPIFP La Salle Santo Ángel school in Zaragoza, Spain, this time with ‘Science in the Modern World’ teacher Mariela Martínez de Jesús and her students. Bienvenidos!
In addition, we are extremely pleased to have returning teachers Tim Newman and his AP Biology Students from the Bishop O’Dowd School in Oakland CA USA, and Anna Johannsen who has moved to Sandnes, Norway, and now brings students from her Nature Sciences class at Gand Videregående Skule.
Which ISCFC September 2012 participating school will be next to have its pin on the map?
Welcome to all ISCFC teachers and students! Joining the September ISCFC are schools from Bangladesh, Brazil, France, Norway, Slovenia, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, Taiwan, and the United States. Please send your data to Jason on the Excel spreadsheet on the PARTICIPATE page (link below) as soon as your students complete the CF Calculator. Encourage your students to join at least three ISCFC Learning Group discussions on the Einztein social learning network early in the project to help them get started. Please send us an informal group photo if you would like to have it posted on the ISCFC site.
Hi, My name is Cathy and I teach science at a high school in New Jersey. I just submitted my participation form for my AP Environmental Science class. Do we need to wait for the participation form to be approved before my students can begin calculating their carbon footprints?
I’m looking forward to having my students participate in the discussion.
Hello, this is Noam from Seattle, WA, USA. I teach biology and physical science at Ballard High School in Seattle Public Schools. My biology students just completed the carbon footprint challenge. I am excited to help them connect with others around the world on this important issue.
Hello again from Mikael Elias gymnasium Stadshagen, Stockholm Sweden!
Looking forward to read the discussions again! If anyone would like to arrange skype meetings with my pupils to discuss sustainable development feel free to contact me!
My pupils are the age of 16 and just about to finish their first year of nature science studies at college level (upper secondary school).
My name is Dubravka and I am a teacher from Požega, Croatia. My pupils and I participated in November 2011 and February 2012 ISCFC, and it was really a rewarding experience so we have decided to join you again.
Here is a link leading to our school web pages (http://www.gimpoz.hr/novosti/797-we-are-the-solution ) where we have published the invitation for the April session accompanied with a short summary of our previous activities and some interesting videos we had used in our discussions. We have added some photograps as well and hope you will enjoy watching them.
I must admit that we will be a little late with our activities this time because we have just returned from a school excursion to Budapest (Hungary) and we will spend this weekend in Pecs and Kopacki Rit (here is some basic information and a short video clip in case you are interested in taking a glimpse of one of Croatian nature parks: http://www.kopacki-rit.com/video-en.html).
I wish you all a pleasant Earth Day and think it would be really a good idea if we could all join or host „Picnic for the Planet events“ ( http://www.nature.org/earthday/index.htm ) and maybe help set the world record?!
Looking forward to reading your posts,
