GREAT GREEN HACK WEEK 2021:
GUIDES + VIDEOS
This is a free resource for kids, parents, teachers and clubs to run their own Great Green Hack Week, using TEC skills to tackle plastic pollution.
Working with the Cornish Plastic Pollution Coalition and with a lot of support from other partners we have put together 3 different activities for you to have fun with. Each challenge uses different skills and can help make a difference to the world around you. To help you get on your way we have created written and video tutorials for you to follow.
Please be sure to share all of your activities with us. You can share them on Facebook or Twitter making sure you tag us into your post and using the #GGHW2021. Or you can send them to us via a direct messager.
If you prefer you can also email them across to us at email@example.com, just make sure to let us know if we are OK to share them with others. We will not share anything without permission.

Day 3: Coding
Our last challenge is all about coding using the BBC micro:bit to make a plastic pollution counter. You can then update your plastic findings on our Beach Clean Data map, sharing your data with the world!
Don't worry if you don't have a micro:bit you can still take part using the micro:bit mobile app!
