Do you want the kids in your community to learn geography, creativity, strategic thinking, good sportsmanship and communications skills simply by having fun? Well, with GeoPlunge® you can do that, in your home, your school, and your community. And now, the AGS is collaborating with LearningPlunge Inc., the Washington, DC based educational non-profit behind the GeoPlunge game and tournaments to take it national. And, we want you to be a part! First, watch this short video about GeoPlunge.
Kids can learn the game in minutes, and become fluent (and even frighteningly good!) at it in a matter of weeks. This is why the American Geographical Society and LearningPlunge Inc. are confident that with your engagement, we together can bring GeoPlunge® to schools nationwide. You can not only help the establishment of GeoPlunge® teams in your schools but also help establish citywide and regional tournaments, to be held November 2017.Tournament locations will be determined based on the energy and interest of those of you who respond to this National Call for Participation by emailing us at GeoPlunge@americangeo.org. We will get back to you soon with instructions on how to organize a team and a tournament. Please include your a) city, b) state, c) school, d) the grade level (Grade 1-8) you seek to organize, and e) a phone number where we can reach you. GeoPlunge® is designed to resonate with all kinds of learners, from the most attentive kid in class to the students who struggle to pay attention, and offers an on ramp to lifelong learning through fun. Become a part of this movement today, and help us bring GeoPlunge® to every community in America! And, along the way, contestants, coaches, and champions can claim their GeoPlunge® GeoBadges.
