For National Science Week in Aug 2023, Marji the Earth and Marji the penguin met ~700 kids from 3 schools with the giant banner and a 12 metre fabric version of the climate stripes for Adelaide. Find the climate stripes for your state or country! Kids acted as scientists for the day to discover why penguins and coral reefs don’t like warming seas by feeding like a coral and getting overheated in a penguin huddle, as well as playing with the GIANT banner and the climate stripes for Adelaide.
Blackwood Primary School (see their 78 entries). Watch kids spell H-O-T with the giant banner and the climate stripes for Adelaide! Kids aged 5-8 did a deep dive into penguins, learning about the penguin life cycle with a 3-way reversible penguin toy (egg to chick to adult). Kids 9-12 either made corals out of LEGO or simulated how earth’s atmosphere changes with combinations of forests and factories using ping pong balls!
