Created by the Captain Planet Foundation, Project Hero is a brand new web-based platform created to engage students to learn about and create meaningful change for endangered species and ecosystems in their area.
Using the QUEST system, students can learn about specific species and ecosystems in their own communities, and what is endangering them. Each Quest presents multi-media content, lessons, and activities.
Once students have learned about these species and environment, Project Hero provides useful information and ideas for students to work together and create projects for their community that help the animals and environment where they live. This fun, engaging, and educational platform empowers students to be a hero for the planet, and inspires them to enact change in their own communities!
The platform does not require any student logins, but educators are encouraged to sign-up for a free account that qualifies you for small grant funds to support your group’s Quest!
